Scouting has been in existence since 1907, offering children and young adults over 100 years of adventure, jamborees, summer camps, badges, scarves and gang shows. The collection of the badges has always been the backbone of the movement, and back in 1914 a book was published that gathered together all of the legendary badges and gave instruction on how to pass them. This is a celebratory edition of that 1914 classic, showing how this much-loved institution has grown and evolved. This truly fascinating book was the official manual used by Scouts to learn these subjects, and by Scout leaders to teach them. This is an authentic dangerous book for boys and takes us back to a distant time before TVs and home computers, when children were encouraged to be active and to 'get out into the open air' whenever they could; a time when it was important to be able to make things and, when they broke, repair them. It is a fascinating historical document that also reveals the morality of an era when readers were entreated to be 'clean in thought, word and deed', and 'refrain from spitting in omnibuses.'

Covering a time of great social and technological change, this history traces the development of the four classic aquatic disciplines of competitive swimming, diving, synchronized swimming and water polo, with its main focus on racing. Working from the beginnings of municipal recreational swimming, the book fully explores the links between swimming and other aspects of English life society including class, education, gender, municipal governance, sexuality and the Victorian invention of the sports amateur-professional divide. Uniquely focused on swimming -often neglected in analytic sports histories- this is the first study of its kind and will be an important landmark in the establishment of swimming history as a topic of scholarly investigation. This book was previously published as a special issue of the International Journal of the History of Sport.
