MetadataShow full item record
Abstract: This paper examines the circumstances that precipitated a shift from liberal, social purpose to vocational adult education in the UK. To the voices of those in the UK who warn of the potentially dire social consequences of this shift, the paper adds the voice of a North American adult educator who addressed the serious implications of just such a shift in adult education's focus early in the century: Eduard Lindeman.
