"Empire and Education in Africa is a useful collection and
should be valuable to readers as they discover the roots of current
issues from the study of colonial schooling in Africa."
(Brendan P. Carmody, History of Education 2017)
"[...] scholars and students of the history of education in Africa or the history of colonial education in other world regions will find something of interest in this collection. It is a valuable and welcome addition to the literature."
(Kelly Duke Bryant, The International Journal of African Historical Studies vol. 50, 2 2017).
