The introductory volume in a new series on vocational education, the book surveys recent literature on the philosophy and foundations of this relatively new field.

Lemons, M. L. Barlow, A. J. Pautler, L. A. Burkett, M. E. Larson, and B. D. Coe. The second section focuses on the foundations of industrial and distributive education, and includes papers dealing with the philosophies of Alfred Whitehead and John Dewey, the relationship of industrial education to occupational education and changing technologies, the responsibilities of industry to education, the use of census data in program implementation, and new vocational education designs in the United States and in Sweden. Contributors include: R. L. Koble, E. R. Glazener, M. J. Bensen, E. Kuntz, L. C. Crawford, D. Maley, J. R. Warmbrod, B. W. Brown, A. G. Wirth, and K. S. Hannson. (Author/MW)
