David H Hargreaves (1975)

Interpersonal Relations and Education

Routledge & Kegan Paul, London.

In this book Hargreaves presents an analysis in which most teachers are considered under the heading of two types, the 'liontamer' and the 'entertainer' which are contrasted with a third type, the 'new romantic'. These types do not represent real teachers, indeed teachers are assumed to draw from characteristics of each type in some degree. Each type can be understood by examining different perspectives on the teacher pupil relationship.

"The library is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where one's devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas - a place where history comes to life." — Norman Cousins, 1954
