Education for Empirebrings together topics in American history often treated separately: schools, race, immigration, and empire building. During the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, American imperial ambitions abroad expanded as the countrys public school system grew. How did this imperialism affect public education?School officials, teachers, and textbook authors used public education to place children, both native and foreign-born, on multiple uneven paths to citizenship. Using case studies from around the country, Clif Stratton deftly shows that public schooling and colonialism were intimately intertwined. This book reveals how studentsfrom Asiansin the U.S. West and Hawai';i to blacks in the South, Mexicansin the Southwest, and Puerto Ricans in the Caribbean and New York Citygrappled withthe expectations of citizenship imposed bynationalist professionals at the helm of curriculum and policy. Students of American history, American studies, and the history of education will findEducation for Empirean eminently valuable book.
