Textbooks in Mozambique - Lessons on the civil war/guerra dos 16 anos

Dear all

I’m wondering if anyone has information regarding the implementation of a common national history curriculum that includes lessons on the civil war in Mozambique. Any information on how to locate history textbooks (printed in 1992-2017) would also be extremely helpful.

Best regards,

Natália

Textbooks in Periods of Political Transition after the Second World War

Dear Colleague,

This special issue examines textbooks in countries undergoing political transition, change, and convulsion. The articles in this issue raise many questions: What happens to textbooks during the intervals between one form of government and another? How does the information contained in textbooks change during these intervals of instability and uncertainty, and during the phases of the construction and consolidation of a new political regime?
