People, politics, and variable funding all contribute to the complexity of the program planning process for continuing education. In this book, Cervero and Wilson articulate a theory of program planning as a social-rather than scientific-process. In so doing, they open up dialogue in an area where debate is badly needed-Must reading for practitioners and professors of adult and continuing education.
