Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents action research findings on two contemporary issues: how to create an accessible and relevant higher education for adults, and how to document the wider social and noneconomic benefits of learning amongst people who do not contribute directly to the nation's wealth through waged work. Part I introduces a globalized and localized context for a future higher education system. Part II explores issues in adult education such as core skills, technology, and guidance, and Part III looks at learners' experiences in a life history context and in relation to what they want from a higher education system. Preece is affiliated with the University of Surrey. Houghton is affiliated with the University of Lancaster. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
