A library of writings on all aspects of teaching, teachers, and those they teach, in story, essay, sketch -- in whole or part. From the classics to the moderns, this maintains a high level of selection, a thoughtful collecting of much that is remembered, much that is traditional, much that will be new to many. The inclusions reflect periods and attitudes, the purpose is to reveal educational policy and procedure, from the pedagogue's and student's viewpoints, to recall the hazards, annoyances, and satisfactions of the profession. Presidents, novelists, lawyers, humorists, teachers, biographers, poets, philosophers -- all are represented for the varying views they contribute. A volume which should enliven any teacher's life, and be of interest to almost anyone who has been taught. A swell job.
