Reviews

“The volume offers a panoramic view of a complex process, showing a variety of economic, social, pedagogical and sanitary goals, revealing the political tensions and struggles that took part in the reconfiguration of public and private spaces and jurisdictions towards the construction of national states.” (Beatriz Alcubierre Moya, Paedagogica Historica, April 30, 2019)


“Each chapter stands out as a helpful introduction to a particular topic in ECE and public child care, and an introductory chapter creates links between most of them. … It makes a major contribution both to the history of ECE and to the public understanding of social projects as integral instruments of social change. Moreover, it is a rich compendium of ideas that bring us a valuable synthesis of questions that have long required attention but remained untouched … .” (Yordanka Valkanova, History of Education, Vol. 46 (3), 2017)
