Democracy and Education by John Dewey

John Dewey's Democracy and Education addresses the challenge of providing quality public education in a democratic society. In this classic work Dewey calls for the complete renewal of public education, arguing for the fusion of vocational and contemplative studies in education and for the necessity of universal education for the advancement of self and society. First published in 1916, Democracy and Education is regarded as the seminal work on public education by one of the most important scholars of the century.

I was pleased with the purchase of this book. I used it for a research paper and it had all the information that I needed for the paper. Although not an abridged version, it lacks more information in terms of the table of contents and the ability to look for topics in an index, which sometimes proves helpful, especially in research endeavors. The book is all Dewey, however, and it is a very good read for people truly interested in educational philosophy. It is a very good deal pricewise.
