Its able authors display the rich diversity of issues and approaches that have characterized the field in the last 30 years." -- David F. Labaree, Professor of Education, Stanford University

Hartman A. Education and the Cold War : the battle for the American school. Vol 1st. New York: Palgrave Macmillan; 2008.

"In contemporary American culture, 'the conservative 1950s' have become something of a cliche. Hartman's smart book gives new historical substance to the term, showing us how--and why--our schools turned Right during the Cold War. Even better, he makes us question whether the schools ever really turned back. The 'conservative 1950s' might still be with us, in more ways than we are willing to admit." -- Jonathan Zimmerman, Professor of Education and History, New York University
