Abstract

A Cultural History of School Uniform is not only a book about school uniforms but is also a history of schooling in Britain over the last five hundred years and a useful text on class, gender, religion and national identity within schooling. Kate Stephenson does a great job of bringing the topic of school uniforms to life while tracing their 500-year history. There is no book to compare this with, which shows how original and useful it is.
