Sources for English local history by W. B Stephens( Book )

56 editions published between 1973 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 987 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English local and regional history has attracted widespread attention in the last twenty-five to thirty years. Its study has expanded at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in universities, polytechnics, and at other institutions of higher education, and it has long retained its popularity as a subject for adult education classes. In schools the teaching of local history in its own right, and as an ingredient of general history, environmental studies, and local and social studies, is well established, and commonly involves the use of original sources. The expansion of genealogical studies into the wider area of family history has involved many individuals and groups in the investigation of the local conditions, which existed where former generations lived and, in this pursuit, increasing use of local records has been made. Many who seek to involve themselves in this work, however, find that they are ill-equipped in the knowledge of what sources exist, where they are to be found, or what techniques are suitable in making the best use of them

As well as examining a wide variety of types of primary sources, published and unpublished, quantitative and qualitative, available for the study of many places, the book also provides information on certain specific sources and some individual collections, in particular those of the National Archives
Education in Britain, 1750-1914 by W. B Stephens( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This concise new study covers the development of education throughout Great Britain from the Industrial Revolution to the Great War, a period in which urbanization, industrialization and population growth posed huge social and political problems, and education became one of the fiercest areas of conflict in society." "Drawing on recent research, W.B. Stephens critically assesses the major topics of current historical controversy including geographical, gender and class variations in experience and attitudes, the connection between education and the Industrial Revolution, the possible educational ingredients of Britain's later economic decline and the determinants of the spread of popular education."--Jacket
