2014 (English)In: Education, Childhood and Anarchism: Talking Colin Ward / [ed] Catherine Burke, Ken Jones, Ashgate, 2014, 1Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

As one of Britain's most original thinkers and writers Colin Ward wrote extensively about positive and practical examples from the past and present of the anarchist spirit or the 'social principle' in everyday life. This volume is the first scholarly work dedicated to examining the significance of his distinctive and highly relevant contributions to the areas of education, children and the environment. In each chapter, international contributors from academic and activist backgrounds offer cross-disciplinary and critical perspectives on Ward's work and its relevance to contemporary debates. The book is divided into four key areas: The Sand Box of the City Adventures in Education Reflections on Practice Mobilisations. This book will appeal to academics and professionals interested in the condition of childhood and youth today. It will prove useful for postgraduates and professionals undertaking further professional development, and is relevant to anyone studying, researching or working in fields relating to children, education and the environment not just in the UK but beyond.
