10 Scouting for Boys: A Handbook for Instruction in Good Citizenship
Baden-Powell, Robert Oxford University Press 2018 0198799993 / 9780198799993 First Thus Hard Cover New No jacket Book 8vo - over 7 
New hardback. Green cloth. RRP 16.99. First impression of this new edition. A scout must always be prepared at any moment to do his duty, and to face danger in order to help his fellow-men. - A startling amalgam of Zulu war-cry and imperial and urban myth, of borrowed tips on health and hygiene, and object lessons in woodcraft, Robert Baden-Powell's Scouting for Boys (1908) is the original blueprint and self-instructor of the Boy Scout Movement. One of the all-time bestsellers in the English-speaking world, this primer of yarns and pictures constitutes probably the most influential manual for youth ever published. Yet the book is at the same time a roughly composed hodge-podge of jingoist lore and tracker legend, padded with lengthy quotations from adventure fiction and Baden-Powell's own autobiography, and seamed through with the multiple anxieties of its time: fears of degeneration, concerns about masculinity and self-restraint, invasion paranoia. Elleke Boehmer's edition of Scouting for Boys reprints the original text and illustrations, and her fine introduction investigates a book that has been cited as an authority by militarists and pacifists, capitalists and environmentalists alike. 145 x 224 x 35 (mm) . pp. 382. BK0004 
Price: 15.29 GBP
