Based upon extensive archival research and thoroughly conversant with the national historiography about schooling, David Sheffler’s case study of education in a southern German city is an important contribution to local history and to the history of education. Like all of the books in Brill’s series on education, this work is intended for scholars and university libraries. Its extensive footnotes provide transcriptions and details about historiography; four substantial appendices contain biographical registers, tables, chronologies, and maps pertaining to students and teachers of Regensburg.
