Title: Enlightened patriotism: or, what was history for?
Authors: Yeandle, Peter
Issue Date: 2015
Publisher: Manchester University Press
Citation: YEANDLE, P., 2015. Enlightened patriotism: or, what was history for? IN: Yeandle, P., Citizenship, nation, empire : the politics of history teaching in England, 1870-1930. Manchester: Manchester University Press.
Abstract: Citizenship, nation, empire investigates the extent to which popular imperialism influenced the teaching of history between 1870 and 1930. It is the first book-length study to trace the substantial impact of educational psychology on the teaching of history, probing its impact on textbooks, literacy primers and teacher-training manuals. Educationists identified 'enlightened patriotism' to be the core objective of historical education. This was neither tub-thumping jingoism, nor state-prescribed national-identity teaching, but rather a carefully crafted curriculum for all children which fused civic as well as imperial ambitions. The book will be of interest to those studying or researching aspects of English domestic imperial culture, especially those concerned with questions of childhood and schooling, citizenship, educational publishing and anglo-British relations. Given that vitriolic debates about the politics of history teaching have endured into the twenty-first century, Citizenship, nation, empire is a timely study of the formative influences that shaped the history curriculum in English schools
