The education of John Dewey : a biography by Jay Martin( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on original sources, this book tells the full story of the life and times of the eminent American philosopher, pragmatist, education reformer, and man of letters, John Dewey. During his lifetime (1859-1952), he was regarded by poll after poll as one of the ten most important thinkers in American history. His philosophy, Pragmatism, has been the distinctive American philosophy during the last fifty years. His work on education is famous worldwide and is still influential today. Dewey rejected old-fashioned schooling and believed in multiculturalism and independent thinking. His University of Chicago Laboratory School (founded in 1896), still thrives today and is a model for schools all over the world. "The Education of John Dewey" shows the unity of Dewey's life and work. Jay Martin recounts Dewey's childhood years, family history, religious influences, and influential friendships, and reassesses his legacy. The book highlights the importance of the women in Dewey's life, especially his mother, wife and daughters, but also others, including the reformer Jane Addams and the novelist Anzia Yezierska

Live all you can : Alexander Joy Cartwright and the invention of modern baseball by Jay Martin( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laying waste to the notion that Abner Doubleday established the modern game of baseball, acclaimed biographer Jay Martin makes a bold case for A. J. Cartwright (1820-1892), an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and avid ballplayer whose keen perception and restless spirit codified the rules of the sport and engineered its rapid spread throughout the country.Consulting Cartwright's personal correspondence and papers, Martin shows how this American archetype synthesized a number of elements from popular ballgames into the program, bylaws, and positions we find on the field today. After formalizing his blueprint, Cartwright worked tirelessly to promote baseball nationwide, appealing to both upper- and lower-class spectators and ballplayers and weaving a trail of influence across nineteenth-century America. Addressing the controversy that has roiled for years around the claims for Doubleday and Cartwright, Martin revisits the original arguments behind each camp and throws into sharp relief the competing ambitions of these figures during a time of aggressive westward expansion and unparalleled opportunities for individual reinvention. Martin's story of modern baseball not only offers a fascinating window into a thoroughly American phenomenon but also accesses a rare history of American ideals
