en Limba Engleză Paperback – September 1995

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.

His daughter, Zoe 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.
