Inhaltsangabe: In this study of the remarkable dominance achieved by women in the field of physical education in England from the late nineteenth century, Sheila Fletcher opens a new perspective in recent educational history. Through the development of the physical training colleges pioneered by women, and with close reference to the history of Bedford -- one of the most prestigious -- she examines the achievement of the pioneers the changes in gymnastics from Ling to Laban and the way in which, after the Second World War, women lost out to men in this field.This highly readable account of the making and breaking of a female tradition will appeal to both feminists and to students of physical education, to those interested in social and educational history and to the general reader.

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
