Abstract/Notes: (p. 6) Later chapters focus on the concepts of Cosmic Education, global awareness, spirituality, and peace, and the text is replete with inspirational as well as practical insights to guide us forward. (p. 60) In other chapters, Wolf presents a cogent argument for raising awareness about what she describes as a "culture of consumerism," bringing thoughtful awareness to how Montessorians can help students navigate corporate marketing interests that do not align with their own best interests (p. 22). Ultimately, Montessori for a Better World offers hope for the future while also serving as an impetus for readers to continue the essential work of preserving and furthering Montessori's legacy of peace.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori lectured in Italian during the first International Montessori Course in 1939 at Madras, India. These 75 lectures were translated into English by her son Mario, as she spoke. And were taken down near verbatim in short hand, transcribed and set into galleys overnight. One such set of proofs forms the original manuscript for this book. For the most part, each chapter in this book encompasses a single lecture. The lectures are left in the same order as they were given, swinging between psychology and the use of the materials. India’s diversity of language, social custom and religious practice enriched her research. During this time, Dr. Montessori worked with children in Madras and put into practice her theories of adapting the environment, furniture and the Practical Life materials to local conditions. In these lectures, Maria Montessori speaks with the mature wisdom of a lifetime spent studying, not just early childhood, but human development as a whole and gives a complete, wonderful and colorful overview of her pedagogy and philosophy.

Abstract/Notes: The intersections of education, cosmology and spirituality are delicately unfolded in this personal biography. This unfolding is told through the review of decades of one man’s life.  In this new book, “Educating for right action and love: Extending and Expanding the Montessori Vision”, Philip Snow Gang reflects on his own life, and his own emerging world view.  We witness the workings of the mind of a man, who simultaneously accepts the world, and wrestles with meaning.
