A copy should be on the library shelf of any historian of education with serious interests in the issues raised by the study of teacher education.
Aldrich has written a solid professional history of his own institution that should be of great interest to scholars of education and historians of teacher training or educational policy, as well as those with a particular interest in the great Byzantine mosaic that constitutes the University of London.
I can recommend this book to those working within education, especially to those with particular interests in educational ideas, institutional history or teacher education.
…Aldrich’s book tells a good story and in doing so provides a valuable reference work for any student interested in the history of teacher education.
