Human civilisation is very old and most of the civili-sations had developed their own systems of education. In the early civilisations education was meant only for the Princes. This process of education for the Princes continued for quite a long time, The great political thinker Machiavelli wrote a book called The education of a prince which was meant to give political education to a Prince. In the same way Rousseau experimented with the education of children belonging to a lower strata, Pestalozzi also developed a system of education which experimented with the idea of providing education to children according to their psychological set up. This book dwells on the history of world education in a very sequential way and starts with the Greek education system to the American education system of today.
