THE JOSSEY-BASS READER ON Contemporary Issues in Adult Education

With contributions from leading experts in the field, The Jossey-Bass Reader on Contemporary Issues in Adult Education collects in one volume the best previously published literature on the issues and trends affecting adult education today. The volume includes influential pieces from foundational authors in the profession such as Eduard C. Lindeman, Alain Locke, and Paulo Freire, as well as current work from authors around the world, including Laura L. Bierema, John M. Dirkx, Cecilia Amaluisa Fiallos, Peter Jarvis, Michael Newman, and Shirley Walters.

In five sections, the book's thirty chapters delve into a wide range of compelling topics including:

  • social justice, democracy, and activism
  • diversity and marginalization
  • human resource development
  • lifelong learning
  • ethical issues
  • the meaning and role of emotions
  • globalization and non-Western perspectives
  • the role of mass media, popular culture, and "social learning"
  • technology
  • health, welfare, and environment

Each piece is framed within its larger context by the editors, and each section is accompanied by helpful reflection and discussion questions.
