Synopsis Engels was a contemporary of Karl Marx. He in fact helped Marx with money to work on his Das Capital and other works. Engles in fact had come to realize the evils of capitalism in Europe and he wanted to save the humanity from disruption and destruction. Engels was in touch with other forces in Europe who were working on the evils of capitalism and the exploitation of the masses. He, therefore tried to devise a system of education which could lead to the establishment of socialism. This book gives the thoughts of Engels in original. This book has great relevance in the world of today. Karl Marx not only revolutionized world politics and economics. He revolutionized world education as well. Marx believed that labour was the main producer of value but it was the most exploited section by the bourgeoise. Marx believed that labour should be given the kind of education which should enable him to produce his bread and he is not dependent on the capitalist class for his living. Karl Marx’s theory of value and Das Capital revolutionized system of education in Soviety Russia, China, India and many other socialist countries of the world. This book gives Marx thoughts on economy, politics and education in original and leaves the reader to make his own judgment. The book has great relevance even today. Leo Tolstoy was not only a literary figure he was also a great educationist. As he belonged to a family of high land holders, he had seen the condition of the poor people and their children who remained illiterate and miserable. Leo Tolstoy started an experimental farm house and experimented with the methods of teaching and giving good education to the children of the poor. The experimental method of providing education to the rural poor, made a great land mark in the history of the progressive education. Leo’s method of education was even adopted in the Russian Communist regime and Mahatma Gandhi of India who also started Seva Gram method of educating the masses was highly influenced by Leo Tolstoy method of education. This book is a testimony to it. Maria Montessori in 1896 was the first woman to become a physician in Italy. She was fascinated by the goal of improving the lot of poor, sub normal children who were disadvantaged both by physical constitution and circumstances. It is made completely comprehensible for the first time, in her turning away from medicine to pedagogy and the broadening of her circle of influence beyond her native Italy to all the countries of the world an inevitable step of momentous importance for entire generations of normal children. Social workers kindergarten teachers, child psychologists and child psychoanalysts agreed in the conviction that the Montessori method in important aspects surpassed every thing that had been offered to the educator up to then.
