"Bending the Future to Their Will": Civic Women, Social Education, and Democracy


This book examines the lives and work of women who forged a distinctive tradition of social education from the late 19th century to the late 20th century, one that offered an alternative set of ideas about its means and ends to those propounded by mainstream educational theorists. In the book, the term "social education" is used to suggest that education about democracy and citizenship has occurred in a variety of settings beyond the school.
