A little dull to read but full of facts. I like the photos that are in the book. Scouting is one of the best programs in this country for young people.

This is more of a "coffee table book" than a serious history. Nice photos.

This is a very interesting history of Scouting as it began in the United Kingdom and what it has become there today. What was Boy Scouts is now, in Europe, just Scouts and includes boys and girls and makes no distinction in sexual orientation. It is also a much more urban organization.

This book is full of interesting and useful information and great historical pictures about the origins of Scouting and its spread around the globe. On pages 186-187 it lists many countries and how many registered scouts there are in each of them. Indonesia is by far the largest with over eight million scouts (8.9 million). The United States is second with 6.2 million.

Another section of the book provides a paragraph or two of how scouting functions in various countries around the world. And in the appendix there is a chronology of important events in the history of the scouting movement.

If you love scouting, this is a very nice book. However, for Americans with our more conservative approach to Boy Scouting, some portions of this book will seem a bit odd. However, this book is about the GLOBAL view of scouting over history and our BSA is only a portion of it, no matter how much its culture and history matter to us here in the USA.
