Kurzbeschreibung

19. Oktober 2010
2010 Facsimile of 1908 Edition. Robert Baden-Powell was born in 1857 and served in the British Army in India, Afghanistan and, later, West and South Africa. In Scouting for Boys he mixed his love for the outdoors, and delight in play-acting, together with the games ethics of the Victorian public school, and processed these into a newly minted tradition, that is, scouting, which became Britain's most successful recreational export of the twentieth century. This book is the foundation document for scouting. Profusely illustrated.

Pressestimmen

"Scouting for Boys was written in the spirit of Peter Pan and Kipling's Kim; the games and plays and campfire stories are full of good ideas and good fun. The chapters on tracking, woodcraft, camp life and chivalry are full of simple (sometimes lifesaving) bits of practical information and exercises that teach children how to be observant, courteous and innovative."--Los Angeles Times"Reissued for the first time...the original Scouting for Boys includes plenty of quaint language and chuckle-worthy advice. But for all its anachronisms, Baden-Powell's blueprint for what became a worldwide movement remains strangely resonant with our own times."--U.S. News and World Report"Baden Powell had charm and courage, and a knack with the young, and he could draw excellent freehand illustrations. All these qualities are evident in this best-selling manual of 1908, now cleverly reissued by Oxford University Press. It's one of the very few books of the twentieth century that actually led to the formation of a worldwide movement."--Christopher Hitchens, The Atlantic Monthly"A fine and intriguing vision of threatened Anglo-American masculinity at the crisis and crest of empire. It's also a hoot."--Chicago Tribune"A flash-frozen, perfectly preserved moment in time, effectively conveying the sense and character of the Edwardian era, rendered not only readable, but delivering a surprisingly pleasant kick through Baden-Powell's vivid, gee-whiz prose."--San Diego Union Tribune"Edited, annotated and introduced by Elleke Boehmer, professor of colonial and post-colonial literature at Nottingham Trent University in England, this fascinating volume tells us a lot about Baden-Powell, his movement and even to some extent the particular point in time when scouting was born."--Washington Times"The overall impression left by Scouting for Boys is, as it was intended to be, bracing. Through this book, untold millions of boys have been led to healthy and -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Scouting for Boys. The Original 1908 Edition: A Handbook For Instruction In Good Citizenship
Zum Lesen und Verstehen, nicht zum Sammeln.
Eine neu abgetippte version des originals, daher gut lesbar, mit den original Illustrationen. Es fehlen aber die Illustrationen der Einbände des Originals wie sie hier Scouting for Boys: The Original 1908 Edition (Dover Books on Sports and Popular Recreations) vorhanden sind.
Das Vorwort kann mann vergessen da die Autorin selber zugibt von der Sache nichts zu verstehen. Die "Fußnoten" (stehen hinten im Buch) sind jedoch richtig hilfreich und tragen zum besseren Verständniss bei.
Das Buch im Link ist wie eine Fotokopie des Originals, mit recht schlechter Schrift. Eher ein Sammlerstück

Scouting for Boys. The Original 1908 Edition: A Handbook For Instruction In Good Citizenship
For those looking for reading and understanding, not for collectors.
A retyped version of the original, which makes it very well readable. Features the original illustrations but the covers of the chapters featured in this book Scouting for Boys: The Original 1908 Edition (Dover Books on Sports and Popular Recreations)are missing. The foreword is to be ignored (as the writer explains herself she has no knowledge of the matter) but the "explanatory notes" are very helpful.
The linked too book is like a copy of the original, with less good print. More a collectors item.

3.0 von 5 Sternen SM202 1. Januar 2005
Von SM202 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I was an Eagle Scout as a boy, and now I'm the founding Scoutmaster of my sons' troop. As such, I was anxious to get a copy of this hard cover version. Baden-Powell's work is a classic and well worth the read. The problem with this edition is the Introduction by Elleke Boehmer. Without it, the book is a 5-star. Ms. Boehmer appears a non-believer. Reading her is like taking a pessimistic art critic along side while viewing an art gallery. Far more benefit (for all concerned) would occur without her input. For each positive she states about BP, she mentions a negative. She also spends just over two pages discussing homosexual tendencies (pp xxxii-xxxiii) within BP's works, something which is out of place in this work. I started to list several quotes, but I think one sums it up best of all from the back cover: "She has never been a scout, but she did once shake hands with Lady Baden-Powell at a jubilee celebration in South Africa." I guess that must make her an expert.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Get a new introduction! 13. Juni 2010
Von john washington - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Great book, terrible intro. What were the publisher's thinking? Do they want to sell books and have this recommended or not? The Intro by Elleke Boehmer is so longwinded (39 pages) and so derogatory toward the Scouts and it's founder it's mind-boggling. She obviously has no respect for the organization, and the sparse accolades she dispenses are only a cover in my opinion so she can degrade and dissect the Scouts two-fold thereafter. I recommend `Boy Scouts Handbook: The first Edition, 1911' (the Dover publications version) until they reprint this book with a positive and uplifting intro; one that makes you want to read or buy the book in the first place. new update, the dover edition 'scouting for boys' is great. much better intro to a great book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Book That Changed The World 21. Januar 2000
Von Derek J. Wheeler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is the basic foundation of the largest youth organisation in the history of the world and has been printed in more editions and languages than most other books apart from the Christion Bible. It was designed to be read by young people and to motivate them to develop all of their skills. It continues to be a major force in motivating young people to prepare to be active citizens in society. However it also contains simple truths for adults on the nature of young people and how best to help them learn and to achieve their full potential. It is required reading for adults educating or working with young people. Read it, enjoy it and then come join Scouting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book shaped my childhood (for the better) 14. August 2012
Von eatmorefrogs - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
There are two ways to read this book and you don't have much of a choice which one you use. You can read it as a child or you can read it as an adult. It makes for completely different reading. I'll review reading it as a youth and as an adult because I assure you it's a different experience.

As a child, this book has the magic of Peter Pan and the practicality of a school book. You hear the war stories of Sir Robert Baden-Powell; they're fascinating heroic tails of the Boer War. At that age it's unlikely that an American boy (such as myself) knows what the Boer Wars were, so the book lacks the distraction of knowing the behind the scenes (the British were liberating concentration camps...it's heavy stuff as an adult.) Instead of touching on the topics of the war itself, the book uses incidents in the war to teach heroism, selflessness, courage, and creativity. The book keeps the material light enough to enjoy at that age but is still incredibly fascinating.

As a youth, it's absolutely gripping. Later in life I learned that it was originally published in installments and due to the large demand, published as a book. I can tell you exactly why it was (and is) widely popular. The book has cool war stories. The book teaches boys how to build a shelter out of fallen branches. The book teaches boys how to track a dear from footprints and how to light a fire with no matches. It's stuff boys get into.

So to recap, as a youth, it's tails of heroism and a "how to" on neat stuff you can do when you're camping.

Here's the lowdown as an adult. Rereading the book as an adult, you can see the mastermind behind it. The man is teaching citizenship to young men. In between tales of cunning war maneuvers and how to start a camp fire, he's telling men to say please and thank you. Excerpt: "A present is not yours until you have thanked for it." Mixed in with cool camping techniques and fun war stories, this becomes fact to a young man. You don't even question the manners parts when your new hero, a Lieutenant General, is practically issuing you a command to say "please."

The book is shockingly progressive for the era. Sir Baden-Powell, as best as I can tell, has views of white/black relations that would be more than acceptable today. His views on women are only dated today to women who have a problem with men opening a door for them (sigh?)

The book is cleverly designed, which is a characteristic of the late Knight. Baden-Powell is telling young men that if they want to be like a Knight (what boy doesn't? It's like a girl wanting to be a princess.) then they need to treat women with respect. The book is rooted in timeless values and leans neither right nor left by modern standards.

This book taught me to be a useful citizen (being a useful citizen is actually the main message,) to treat women with respect, and a little bit about camping. Those things might not be popular today, but if you want your son or daughter to embrace some timeless core values, give it a look. Equally as importantly, then pick it up and read it yourself. You'll be glad you did and you'll probably be better person for it (and you probably won't be able to put it down.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent if you skip the intro 11. Januar 2007
Von Jim Turner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This original text of BP's "Scouting for Boys" is an excellent read. You can skip the introduction, however. The intro is a steaming pile of horse excrement written by someone seething with contempt for BP and the Boy Scout movement. Why it was included with the book is beyond me unless it's to provide bum fodder whilst camping. Remember, a scout is thrifty!
