About this product
- DescriptionScouts have been part of the fabric of British society since the Movement's founding by Lieutenant-General Robert Baden-Powell in 1907, and Scout training continues to provide young people with 'instruction in good citizenship' to this day. Beginning with an outline of Baden-Powell's life and influences, Susan Cohen here tells the story of the Scout Movement and its growth from an experimental camp held on Brownsea Island, Dorset, attended by a handful of boys, into a multi-cultural, multi-national movement involving (in 2011) some 400,000 young people (including 60,000 girls) in the UK and millions of others across the world.
- Author BiographySusan Cohen is an historian with a wide interest in twentieth-century British social history and refugee studies. She has written and lectured widely on a variety of subjects. Her other books include Rescue the Perishing: Eleanor Rathbone and the Refugees and, for Shire, 'The Womens' Institute' and 'The District Nurse'.
