This is a very important book. It is rich and intelligently collected and should be in the library of anyone who is interested in the way our educational theories and practices have developed.
Mariolina Salvatori presents an anthology of documents that examine the evolution of American education in the nineteenth century and meaning of the word pedagogy.
Is this book needed? Absolutely. Issues of pedagogy are everywhere in education. This could have been a dry compilation, but instead it takes on the characteristics of a personal quest.
Represents an original contribution to knowledge. Salvatori has a compelling prose style.
