Reviews for Religious
Perhaps the book's greatest strength is Schell's skillful use of archival data on parallel programs and co-operation to show the common role of government and Church in managing the social conflict that threatened both entities. . . . A very solid contribution to Mexican social history and the growing literature on Church-state co-operation in the face of offical anticlericalism.
Catholic Historical Review
Schell captures the broad definition of what constituted education in revolutionary Mexico City.
The author provides a wealth of empirical material. . .on curricula, pedagogy, classroom activities, and the lives of teachers.
