The Old School Tie - The Phenomenon Of The English Public School


Author: Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy

Synopsis: Originally published in England under the title "The Public School Phenomenom, 597-1977." Though there have been previous books about the British public schools, this long, entertaining, and probing work stands in a class by itself. The author gives us the whole chronicle from the Dark Ages through the crucial and formative nineteenth century to the modern phenomenaof girls' and progressive schools. It is a story which must fascinate anyone anywhere concerned with education, children, class, society, or the human condition. "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.


Good - This book has been used, but it is still in a clean condition. There should be no brown spots, but do expect slight yellowing or some writings on the pages.
