Alma Mater or the Future of Oxford and Cambridge

Julian Hall

Originally published in 1928

"Conspicuously fair" Manchester Guardian

"...he writes about the two universities with frankness, humour and intelligence." Nation

Chiron, or the Education of a Citizen of the World

M Chaning Pearce

Originally published in 1931

Admitting the many qualities of the Public School, this volume discusses its suitability for leadership under modern social, political and economic conditions. It concludes that while the public schools have produced a "governing class" of supreme administrative value in the past, it is failing to adapt itself to the modern need for co-operation rather than domination, and federalism rather than imperialism.

Eleutheros, or the Future of the Public Schools

J F Roxburgh

Originally published in 1930

"The stimulating quality is not lacking. An excellent book which it would benefit every schoolmaster...and parent to read." Weekend Review

This volume discusses the influence of the public schools as the creators of a particular social class, the dangers of their expensiveness and the sources from which they will be recruited in the future. The conclusion reached is that the future of the public schools depends upon social and economic forces whose effects cannot be foreseen.
