Twenty-one international adult educators contribute 17 chapters exploring contemporary dilemmas created for adult educators by the ideological, historical, and localizing practices of globalization. They examine presumptions about neo- conservative globalism because of its limited perspectives on the ideas, contexts, systems, and practices of adult education, proposing instead an alternative view affirming the work of adult educators as activist innovators. Coverage includes examinations of neo-conservative globalism; literacy, language, making meaning, and reflexivity; practitioner development; and adult learning, technology, and work.
