Hello Folks, =

I have only been on the list for a couple of weeks and I had thought I'd
wait a month or two before adding my two cents, or two pence I should say=

as I'm writing this from England, but I can't resist adding some titles t=
o
the growing book list. Most of these books have American publishers but
this list just mentions the British ones. Some of these books are already=

on the list but I leave it to someone else to sort them out. Many of them=

are out of print. Some of them have different titles in the USA, for
instance the wonderful book Fifty Years of Freedom was called Children's
Freedom in the States. I hope this book list is more use than trouble to
people.
=

Incidentally, the title for one of the books on your list is wrong. A.S.
Neill's great bestseller in the 1960's was Summerhill, not Summerhill
School. Summerhill School is the name of the (far superior) book of Neill=
's
writings that I edited in the early 90's. The original Summerhill was
compiled by Neill's publisher, Harold Hart, and Neill was never happy wit=
h
it. I like to think he would have preferred mine.

Nice to meet you all. =
