Item description for Hertfordshire Children in War and Peace, 1914-1939 by David Parker...
Focusing on the period between thebeginning of World War I and the outbreak of World War II, this history of education shows the people of Hertfordshire going through astonishing changes as war and social upheaval convulsed the county. Hertfordshire evolved from a war training camp during World War I into a post-Victorian, modern community. Among thetopics discussed are the direct effect of military conflict on the county, the evolving situation for children both at school and at work, public health, rural protectionism, the rise of vocationalism in urban schools, and the controversy over Hertfordshire church schools.
