Adult and community education is a means by which social and educational change can be achieved, often in the face of political indifference or opposition. This book examines the relationship between adult education and the state in the international sphere, focusing on the current state of movements in Scotland and the UK, Canada, Australia, Thailand, Yugoslavia, Germany, France and several other developed countries. It argues that opportunities for the extension of learning must be supported by financial backing from governments and industry and importantly, by the will of educators. It will help adult and community educators draw comparisons between their own work and aspirations and that of their colleagues.
