"A scout must always be prepared at any moment to do his duty, and to face danger in order to help his fellow-men." A startling amalgam of Zulu war-cry and imperial and urban myth, of borrowed tips on health and hygiene, and object lessons in woodcraft, Robert Baden-Powell's Scouting for Boys (1908) is the original blueprint and 'self-instructor' of the Boy Scout Movement. One of the all-time bestsellers in the English-speaking world, this primer of 'yarns and pictures' constitutes probably the most influential manual for youth ever published. Yet the book is at the same time a roughly composed hodge-podge of jingoist lore and tracker legend, padded with lengthy quotations from adventure fiction and Baden-Powell's own autobiography, and seamed through with the multiple anxieties of its time: fears of degeneration, concerns about masculinity and self-restraint, and invasion paranoia. Elleke Boehmer's edition of Scouting for Boys reprints the original text and illustrations, and her fine introduction investigates a book that has been cited as an authority by militarists and pacifists, capitalists and environmentalists alike.

Scouting is presented as a solution to the challenges faced by African American boys in this insightful resource. Whether children are raised in single-parent homes or without strong male role models, or for those lured by the surrogate support of urban street life, the book posits that scouting can provide boys with some necessary foundations. Scouting also teaches boys in a single-gender structure, which offers the extra discipline that many schools favor. As the book’s pro-scouting stance focuses on the history and benefits, it doubles as an effective recruiting tool for scouting programs, as well as a useful consultant for single mothers, youth workers, and church officials.

In 1899 while serving in the 2nd Boer War, Robert Baden-Powell penned his sixth military book, Aids To Scouting. It was a non-typical training manual filled with personal stories of intrigue and even games. Its goal was to encourage the development of light reconnaissance scouting skills within the British Army. The book was well received by various armies of its time, including the French Army. His successful defense of Mafeking (1899-1900) in South Africa made Baden-Powell a well-known national hero in Britain. But what completely surprised Baden-Powell was that his book was eagerly taken up by teachers and youth groups to help organize outdoor activities and sport. He eventually embraced the idea of adapting his work into a new youth-oriented book, Scouting for Boys (1908) which went on to sell approx. 150 million copies to date. It was that follow-on book that firmly launched the international Boy Scouts movement. Aids to Scouting contains sections on the characters of a scout, as well as practical advice on observation, stealth/camouflage, map reading, sketching, tracking, reporting and care of horses. It presents these topics is a simple conversational style that makes it easy to read, and is illustrated with personal anecdotes of military adventures by the author. It gives scholars clear insights into his mindset and beliefs that served him well in the siege of Mafeking and shows a clear lineage to the formation of the tenets of his formation of the Boy Scouts. Anyone interested in the history of Boy Scouting will definitely want to read this interesting and formative book. (NOTE - Appendix C contents is missing in this Kindle version - but we hope to update the ebook with it once a suitable facsimile can be referenced).

In "Sons of the Empire," Robert MacDonald explores popular ideas and myths in Edwardian Britain, their use by Baden-Powell, and their influence on the Boy Scout movement. In particular, he analyses the model of masculinity provided by the imperial frontier, the view that life in younger, far-flung parts of the empire was stronger, less degenerate than in Britain. The stereotypical adventurer - the frontiersman - provided an alternative ethic to British society. The best known example of it at the time was Baden-Powell himself, a war scout, the Hero of Mafeking in the South African war, and one of the first cult heroes to be created by the modern media. When Baden-Powell founded the Boy Scouts in 1908, he used both the power of the frontier myth and his own legend as a hero to galvanize the movement. The glamour of war scouting was hard to resist, its adventures a seductive invitation to the first recruits. But Baden-Powell had a serious educational program in mind: Boy Scouts were to be trained in good citizenship. MacDonald documents his study with a wide range of contemporary sources, from newspapers to military memoirs. Exploring the genesis of an imperial institution through its own texts, he brings new insight into the Edwardian age.

Before "Aids to Scouting" and long before "Scouting for Boys," "Reconnaissance and Scouting" distilled all of Baden-Powell's military scouting and reconnaissance knowledge and experience into an easily-digestible series of twenty lessons designed to instruct British army officers and NCOs in the little-known arts of military scouting. With all original illustrations, this new paperback edition of Baden-Powell's "Scouting and Reconnaissance" brings this exceptionally rare book to a 21st Century audience. Those with modern military special operations or reconnaissance experience will see many concepts presented in the books which would still be workable today, more than 130 years after the first edition of this book was published. Be sure to keep an eye out for our new editions of Baden-Powell's military and scouting books, which inlcude: Reconnaissance and Scouting (1884) - red leather cover Cavalry Instruction (1885) - red canvas cover Aids to Scouting - For N.-C.Os. & Men (1899) - red cover Scouting for Boys Part I (1908) - buff cover Scouting for Boys Part II (1908) - buff cover Scouting for Boys Part III (1908) - buff cover Scouting for Boys Part IV (1908) - buff cover Scouting for Boys Part V (1908) - buff cover Scouting for Boys Part VI (1908) - buff cover Scouting for Boys - All Parts (1908) - light blue cover Boy Scouts of America Official Handbook - Original Edition (1910) - khaki cover Aids to Scoutmastership (1919) - khaki cover

Please note This is NOT the current edition of the BSA Handbook. It is a reprint of an historical edition of the BSA Handbook. For the first time, we are pleased to present this facsimile copy of the 1910 Original Edition of the Boy Scouts of America Official Handbook! Written primarily by Ernest Thompson Seton, with sections added from Lieutenant General Sir Robert Baden-Powell's "Scouting for Boys" and "Aids to Scouting." The 1910 Original Edition is a milestone in the history of the Boy Scouts of America. Published only from July 1910 to March 1911, this short-lived BSA Handbook was cobbled together using material from Seton's earlier work "The Birch Bark Roll" and then fused with Baden-Powell's Boy Scouts concept. Always meant as a temporary handbook until a proper one could be written and published, the 1910 Original Edition is super interesting and contains a wealth of woodsman's lore and military scouting techniques and training which do not appear in later editions of the BSA Handbooks. Many expertss consider this book to be quite a useful backwoods survival manual, and it definitely has appeal to the modern "classic camping" movement. The content of this edition is presented exactly as per the original, with the same page count, illustrations and table of contents. It's the original text exactly as it was presented in 1910 without some modern "expert" analysis or introduction. Today's reader can make up their own mind by actually reading the book. A perfect gift for the classic camping enthusiast, old Eagle Scout or the young Indiana Jones in your life. With all original illustrations, this new paperback replica edition brings this exceptionally rare book to a 21st Century audience. Be sure to keep an eye out for our new editions of Baden-Powell's military and scouting books, which inlcude: Reconnaissance and Scouting (1884) - red leather cover Cavalry Instruction (1885) - red canvas cover Aids to Scouting - For N.-C.Os. & Men (1899) - red cover Scouting for Boys Part I (1908) - buff cover Scouting for Boys Part II (1908) - buff cover Scouting for Boys Part III (1908) - buff cover Scouting for Boys Part IV (1908) - buff cover Scouting for Boys Part V (1908) - buff cover Scouting for Boys Part VI (1908) - buff cover Scouting for Boys - All Parts (1908) - light blue covers Boy Scouts of America Official Handbook - Original Edition (1910) - khaki cover Aids to Scoutmastership (1919) - khaki cover
