Summary

"The book focuses on a crucial era in American education, and by limiting the scope of the book to the collaboration of two important figures the editor has provided the kind of insights that 'surveys' of the progressive education era are unable to provide. The vigor and passion of the subjects as well as the time come through in a most enjoyable way. The book is well written and a joy to read." -- E. Wayne Ross, State University of New York at Albany

A thoughtful and thought-provoking conversation, the Counts-Beard correspondence illuminates the issues facing American education today. The correspondence explores the collaboration between them as Counts impressed upon the teachers of the nation the importance of interpreting the present in the context of the past, and shaped the future toward what he saw as America's unfulfilled promise.

"This is a fascinating book. It reads like a drama with an inspiring, if uncertain, outcome. Anyone who knows about these men and shares their commitment to democracy is bound to be moved by the story of their relationship. Counts and Beard played leading roles in what was arguably the most vibrant period in American cultural history. Their ultimate concern was with those attitudes and values that define us as a people." -- Philip L. Smith, The Ohio State University

Lawrence J. Dennis is in the Department of Educational Administration and Higher Education at Southern Illinois University.
