This is the extraordinary story of Harry Ree, `the pre-eminent educationalist of the post-War years'.

The youngest of eight children, he went to Cambridge and then into teaching, and after ten years as headmaster of Watford Boys' Grammar School he became a fervent advocate for comprehensives.

The first professor appointed at the University of York, he argued for innumerable causes: community education, comprehensives, curricular reform, voluntary suicide, and much else.

His life and thought explored such questions as: What can you do if you truly believe in the power of education?

What does it mean to live a life committed to public service?

Is one person's compromise another's sell-out? And what does it mean to be a visionary?
