Anton Semyonovich Makarenko, Russian educator and novelist, was born on March 13, 1888, in the town of Belopolye, in Kharkov Gubernia, the Ukraine. Besides being a remarkable teacher, he was a profound theoretician and made a major contribution to Soviet pedagogics. Makarenko was an innovator. He worked out a new and original approach to the methodological foundations of pedagogy, a new theory of discipline - the "discipline of combating and surmounting difficulties" - and a system for the building of character. He laid great stress on the importance of home upbringing, and gave many valuable instructions in this field. To him we owe the first detailed elaboration of the educational significance of the collective. Another innovation was his remarkably profound "system of perspectives," the essence of which he defined in the following words: "Man must have something joyful ahead of him to live for. The true stimulus in human life is the morrow's joy." The Road to Life, in which Makarenko describes life in the Gorky Colony (or, more correctly, the building-up of the colony), and his pedagogical system, was begun in 1925 and completed in 1935, Maxim Gorky much admired this book, which he called "one of the best examples of Soviet literature. The language of the book is vivid, full of imagery, truth and humor, and gives subtle psychological descriptions of the pupils and teachers in the colony. Gorky said that Makarenko "knew how to describe each colonist in a few words, with photographic fidelity."

    Muhteşem! İnsanın içini umut ve neşeyle dolduran ve bunu son derece zorlu şartları anlatarak yapan bir kitap. Çoğu zaman pedagojinin genel geçer ve beylik kurallarına çok ters davrandığının kendi de farkında Makarenko, yine de kendi adıma tamamen katıldığım argümanlar sunuyor. Üstelik bunu hiç büyüklenmeden, teorize etme şehvetine kapılmadan yapıyor. Çocuk ve gençlerle çalışan herkesin okumasını tavsiye ederim.

    I found these books in a box just a few months back(there are 3 parts of this book) and these has already become my favourite ones.Its a non fiction and tells the true story of the Gorky-Colony in the erestwhile Soviet Union.The colony is more like a Rehab for the kids living in streets.It takes u to a wonderful journey of emotions,fast happening incidents and you get the chunk of humour as well that we find in most of the russian books.It teaches about life,in a really simple way.A must read fo I found these books in a box just a few months back(there are 3 parts of this book) and these has already become my favourite ones.Its a non fiction and tells the true story of the Gorky-Colony in the erestwhile Soviet Union.The colony is more like a Rehab for the kids living in streets.It takes u to a wonderful journey of emotions,fast happening incidents and you get the chunk of humour as well that we find in most of the russian books.It teaches about life,in a really simple way.A must read for everyone.

    there are two parts and i suggest anyone who has been though school life should read them. It's non fiction. Set in erestwhile Soviet Russia- let's just say things are possible when you believe in yourself and the ability of others to care. Reading it for the fifteenth time in the last 8 years

    A must read for anyone who wants to work with children. It is a great example of the use of play and collective activity as a therapeutic tool. It is one of the books that forms the basis of my work.
