“Exploring information heretofore overlooked, the work studies how Montessori education was influenced by the relationship between S. S. McClure and Maria Montessori, as well as what might have been had the two not experienced their dispute regarding control of the process and resultant feud.”
“Bringing Montessori to America is a fascinating book about Maria Montessori and S. S. McClure, the man who brought her to America. This work reads like a novel. There is intrigue, deception, great highs and very low lows in the relationship befitting a great drama.”
—Vitae Scholasticae, 2016
—Karen L. Riley, author of Schools Behind Barbed Wire: The Untold Story of Wartime Internment and the Children of Arrested Enemy Aliens
“The Guteks provide a unique view of McClure’s and Montessori’s power struggle over how to present Montessori’s method, leading to a better understanding of the split between the American Montessori Society and the Association Montessori Internationale. Scholarly without being dense, this engaging book will appeal to a wide range of readers.”
—Martha May Tevis, professor, Department of Education, University of Texas–Pan American
