This book represents the result of recent historical research by German and American scholars on German influences on education in the United States during the nineteenth century. The authors deal with all aspects of education, from kindergarten through primary and secondary education to universities. In analyzing German educational influences on the United States, the essays are concerned with reports of American visitors to Germany, as well as with accounts and activities of German educators in the United States. The book shows that in the context of an immigrant culture, the question of influence needs to be considered in an interdisciplinary setting. At the same time, the account recognizes that both Germany and the United States were mutually affected by the development and progress of their relevant educational theories and practices.
