A New View of ChildhoodBook - 1993
Originally publishing in 1960, this revised account of a controversial school for children starts with the premise, "All crimes, all hatreds, all wars can be reduced to unhappiness.... Children can be reared so that much of this unhappiness will never arise." By allowing students to create and vote for the rules they must follow, astounding changes in a child's sense of responsibility are reported. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
