Education for a New World

By Maria Montessori

This book captures the essence of the spirit of a great educationist in her time. Interspersed with moving accounts of her observation of the children who led her towards a deeper understanding of humanity, Dr. Montessori explains the child's journey on the path of development. Many of the ideas later elaborated in her important work The Absorbent Mind find an early place. Drawing on a wealth of contemporary ideas she discusses her educational philosophy practically and yet simply.
