Description

Depicting the ways that adult education has evolved as society has changed and how it has been incorporated into lifelong learning, this is a truly unique set that puts a stamp on an exciting field and important, far-reaching issues. These five volumes represent a great advance to scholars, as this is the first comprehensive overview of the field.

The set draws on books, journals, reports and historical papers to map the vast field of education for adults. The writings included in the set have influenced the development of both the practice and the study of adult education from the Guilds to vocational education, distance learning and leisure learning. The collection also covers the recent emergence of corporations as new providers of education for adults with the corporate classroom, corporate universities and consultancies.

A detailed index and new introduction by the editor will help the reader navigate this wealth of diverse material.
