    In Hansen's words "the book tells of extraordinary individuals who reflected profoundly on the meaning of life in the midst of great challenges of the 20th century and use their lives--courageously and generously--to open educational pathways for us, their successors" (p. xi). As the editor, Hansen gathered a variety of academia to share the influence of various people--Dewey, Freire, W.E.B. Dubois, Jane Addams, Tao Xingzhi, Montessori, Rabindranath Tagore, Rudolf Steiner, and Albert Schweitzer.

Dubois, Jane Addams, Tao Xingzhi, Montessori, Rabindranath Tagore, Rudolf Steiner, and Albert Schweitzer. Each chapter provides an overview of the person's life and an examination of how his/her life influenced education at their time and how their influence can still be seen today. While academic in nature, the text is easily accessible and highlights important people in the history of education. The people selected represent both eastern and western thought.
