A. Publisher:Cambridge Univ Pr Publication Date:Nov-20-2008 Pages:361 Binding:Paperback Edition:1st Dimensions:5.98 (W) x 8.90 (H) x 1.02 (D) ISBN:0521090393 Subject:History / Europe / Great Britain Description: An original and stimulating contribution to the history of public schools, educational ideologies and secondary education. -- Cambridge Univ Pr Games obsessed the Victorian and Edwardian public schools. This obsession has become widely known as athleticism. Now commonly regarded as an indulgence, it was in fact much more: a combination of hedonism and idealism. This is a major study of the games ethos which dominated the lives of many Victorian and Edwardian public school boys. It includes much hitherto unpublished material about schools, people, practices and attitudes, and adds insights and subtlety to earlier, uncomplicated generalizations. Dr Mangan's readable and engrossing study of athleticism is a work of substantial and fluent scholarship. It is an original and stimulating contribution to the history of public schools, educational ideologies and secondary education which will interest the general reader as well as the social scientist, historian and educationalist. -- Cambridge Univ Pr Brand new Paperback.
