This special issue examines textbooks in countries undergoing political
transition, change, and convulsion. The articles consider textbooks from
countries shifting from one political regime to another, “at different
speeds and with different priorities,”1 in the second half of the twentieth
century. The articles raise a number of questions. What happens to textbooks
during the intervals between one form of government and another?

intervals of instability and uncertainty, and during the phases of the construction
and consolidation of a new political regime?
