Ian Cawood’s review in the Times Literary Supplement appears in the edition dated 29th November, 2013. Also ‘very good’, in the words of Penelope Corfield, who has contributed so much to the overall success of the work. Most notably Ian has observed that:
“There are excellent chapters on Dixon’s forgotten contribution to the significant achievement of near-mass literacy in Britain by the end of the century, which includes some fascinating detail on the breach between Chamberlain and Dixon over the question of religious teaching in 1878″.
There are also some constructive observations.
