'Robert Owen provides a penetrating and compelling account of the influence and relevance of Owen today, an 'ambivalent legacy' as Davis and O'Hagan argue, balanced between a new world utopianism and Scottish Enlightenment rationality. This is an excellent, thought-provoking and exciting introduction to the education thought of Robert Owen, one of the most remarkable reformers of the industrial age and one of its most impassioned educational thinkers.'

Michael A. Peters, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA
