Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In 11 essays reprinted from vol. 19, nos.1-2 (2000), British, German, Swiss, and Dutch education scholars explore how the thought of US education theorist Dewey (1859- 1952) has been adopted and adapted in the various non-English speaking countries of Europe. They argue that the upsurge of interest after 1989 is not just a replay of the initial reception within the different camps of progressive education, but is related to the end of socialist education and the search for an alternative paradigm. There is no index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
