Adult Learning in the Social Context
By Peter Jarvis
Routledge – 2012 – 220 pages
This book is a logical progression from The Sociology of Adult and Continuing Education. The author takes a completely new approach to the subject and puts forward a model of adult learning which is analysed in depth. This model arises from the results of a research project in which adults analysed their own learning experiences.
