favourite topic of mine, for many years, both within German Studies and also as a
component in Comparative Education. I owe particular gratitude to my wife who
helped me put the subject-matter into recognizable English and who employed her
British pragmatism to discourage my inclination to wander off into speculative
theorizing, often at the expense of clarity and logical progression.
