"Peter Kallaway's new work is a superb evocation of the cultures of colonial education, persuasively assessing their impact on policies and lives in our own time, and demanding the attention not only of colonial historians of Africa, but of educators worldwide." Gary McCulloch, Brian Simon Professor of History of Education, UCL Institute of Education, London.
Peter Kallaway is Professor Emeritus at the University of the Western Cape, and an honorary Research Associate at the University of Cape Town. He is co-editor of Education and Empire in Africa, the shaping of a comparative perspective (2016).
