An Essay on the History and Management of Literary, Scientific, & Mechanics' Institutions.
Hole, James
The object of this essay is to establish the right of the working class to a popular culture. It was written in reaction to the great disparity which existed in England between the progress achieved in terms of material wealth and the low moral and intellectual state of those whose labor had produced it. Chapter I, History, delves into the origin of the Mechanics' Institutes. Chapter II, Objects and Methods of Adult Instruction, discusses the twofold character of an artisan's education. Chapter III, Business Management, describes methods of improving the financial position of the Institutes. Finally, Chapter IV, Union of Institutes, discusses the importance and nature of the unions, both English and American. (CK)
