Summary: "Opening new territory in social-cultural history, this important book uncovers a wealth of fresh and little-known material on non-formal education, a subject that no one before Kett quite realized is a subject. In the process, he also tells us an enormous amount about formal education, social aspiration, and cultural values over a span of more than two centuries. The book will be useful to students of American educa...tion and to historical and literary scholars of American culture. Especially valued will be Kett's attention to the special role of women, to class differences, and to the comparative history of popular education in the United States and Great Britain."Dorothy Ross, The Johns Hopkins University "As with Kett's other works, it is an excellent thematic study that blends intellectual and social history. It is based on prodigious research and is a pleasure to read, for it combines a broad sweep and bold statement with delightful detail. It should appeal to both scholars and general readers."Helen Lefkowitz Horowitz, Smith College
