An examination of women educationists in nineteenth and early twentieth century Britain. Working with new paradigms opened up by feminist scholarship, it reveals how women leaders were determined to transform education in the quest for a better society. Previous scholarship has either neglected the contributions of these women or has misplaced them. Consequently intellectual histories of education have come to seem almost exclusively masculine. This collection shows the important role which figures such as Mary Carpenter, Barbara Leigh Smith Bodichon, Elizabeth Edwards and Maria Montessori played in the struggle to provide greater educational opportunities for women. The contributors are: Anne Bloomfield, Kevin J. Brehony, Norma Clarke, Peter Cunningham, Mary Jane Drummond, Elizabeth Edwards, Mary Hilton, Pam Hirsch, Jane Miller, Hilary Minns, Wendy Robinson, Gillian Sutherland and Ruth Watts.

"Practical Visionariesis the first full-length account of an Australian aid organization. It tells the story of Community Aid Abroad, from its origins in the Australia of the 1950s until the present day. Drawing on her own long association with the organization, as well as on research conducted in Australia, Asia, and Africa, Susan Blackburn analyses the efforts of CAA and its Third World partners to create a world without poverty and injustice.Almost from the start, Community Aid Abroad has been unusually ambitious in its aims of promoting development through aid and trade, of educating Australians about their relations with the Third World, and of attempting to influence public policy. Finding effective means of pursuing these goals has involved conflict and frustration as well as hard-won successes, testing the limits of what a voluntary organization can achieve. Now that it has become a well-known national institution, a major challenge facing CAA is to live up to its own self-image as part of a global social movement."

Excerpt from Practical Visionaries: Brief Sketches, Illustrating the Power and Spirit of Salvation Army Work Amongst the Common People The force by which they thus strive is the spirit of Christ and Him crucified. Except in rare cases, they have not apprehended any theological system embracing this as a dogma or doctrine. They have not reached their experience of it by way of any contract to believe, or by any declara tion of faith. It is a strength which has been wrought in them by the Holy Spirit. It is a new creation within them, by which they not only enter into the church of the Living God, but by which they dare to oppose the spirit of the world, and to strive to correct that bias towards evil which SO largely controls the streams of the living round about them.

Who says that all possible social and political systems have already been invented? Or that work—or marriage, or environmentalism, or anything else—must be just what they are now? This book is a conceptual toolbox for imagining and initiating radical social change. Chapters offer specific, focused, and shareable techniques: Seeking a Whole Vision: Creating a pull and not just a push toward change Generative Thinking: Looking for “Seeds” and “Sparks”, Stretching and Twisting Ideas, and Going Two Steps Too Far Looking for Unexpected Openings: “Weeds” and “Wild Cards,” Inside Tracks, Leverage Points, and Hidden Possibilities Working at the Roots: Reconstructing the built world, cultural practices, even worldviews Building Momentum: Playing to our Strengths, Reclaiming the Language, “Allying Everywhere,” Doing it Now, Going for Broke Leap-frogging new kinds of cars and better mass transit in turn, why not a world in which “transportation” itself is unneeded? What about remaking New Orleans as a floating city, or putting only extreme surfers in the path of hurricanes? And why not dream of the stars? The question is not whether radical change is coming. It is already well underway. The only question is who will make it. Why not us? Anthony Weston is a professor of philosophy at Elon University in North Carolina, where he teaches ethics, environmental studies, and “Millennial Imagination.” He is the author of ten other books, including Back to Earth, Jobs for Philosophers, and Creativity for Critical Thinkers.
