Education, in all its varied forms, has played a leading role in fostering change in Latin American society. In Molding the Hearts and Minds, fifteen essays by leading scholars examine how education has influenced the history of Latin America, from the schools of the nineteenth century to today's bureaucracy. The essays are divided into sections covering the past two centuries: 'The Colonial Legacy and the Nineteenth Century,' 'Universities in Ferment,' 'Revolution,' and 'The Problems of Institutionalization.' This volume will be welcomed by historians, Latin Americanists, and comparative education scholars.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In an era where education is considered as a possible solution to many of Latin America's woes, John Britton's Molding the Hearts and Minds is timely and informative. The essays are deftly selected and balanced historically, geographically, and theoretically. -- Roderic Ai Camp, Philip McKenna Professor of the Pacific Rim, Claremont McKenna College
With this imaginatively chosen collection, John Britton has provided a coherent and tantalizing glimpse of the character and development of education in 19th and 20th century Latin America and its relationship to social change. The reader will find this a felicitous working tool, in or out of the classroom, for the study of the cultural, intellectual, and social history of Latin America. -- Charles W. Macune, Jr., California State University, Northridge
Britton has assembled a provocative set of readings on a highly significant topic. Most of the contributions are well written and thoroughly researched . . . a useful book for anyone interested in social change in Latin America. * Hispanic American Historical Review *
