Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1960, Summerhill became an instant bestseller and a classic volume of education for an entire generation. Now, this thoroughly expanded and revised version of the original Summerhill reinstates the revolutionary "free school" traditions begun by Summerhill's founder A.S. Neill.

As American education lags behind the rest of the world, this new edition is more timely than ever. The children of today face struggles far greater than any previous generation and we, as parents and teachers, must teach them now to make choices for themselves and to learn from the outcome of their decisions.

This classic work yet again invites a new view of childhood and presents an essential treatise that challenges us to rethink our approach to education.

Book News Annotation:

****Originally published in 1960, and cited in BCL3, this influential bestseller describing Neill's views of education and his school is here reprinted from a 1990 revised edition.

Synopsis:

Now, this thoroughly expanded and revised version of the original Summerhill reinstates the revolutionary ""free school"" traditions begun by summerhill's founder A.S. Neill.

About the Author

A. S. Neill was born in 1883 in Forfar, Scotland. In addition to establishing the Summerhill School, Neill lectured widely and published over twenty books. He died in 1973. His daughter, Zoë Readhead, now serves as the headmistress of Summerhill.

Editor Albert Lamb, a Summerhill alumnus, worked as a cartoonist and musician before returning to the school to help out on the staff. He now commutes between Summerhill and his home in the Cotswolds, where he lives with his family.
