9780313276125: Adult Education for Community Development: (Contributions to the Study of Education)

Community development depends on effective social action, and effective social action requires the acquisition of related knowledge and skills. While other studies of community development stress the role of economic and political factors, Hamilton develops an educational model for promoting change within the community. The focus of the study is not so much on formal education, but on the role of nonformal education in fostering community development. Hamilton argues that through effective adult education, citizens can be empowered to improve their communities. His argument is grounded on a theoretical model that recognizes the intrinsic motivation of many adult citizens to improve their surroundings and which acknowledges that motivation must be matched with information.

The book begins with an overview and analysis of the conceptual, operational, and theoretical dimensions of adult education and the development of communities. The chapters that follow discuss issues ranging from theories of social change to the identification of community needs. At the heart of the work is a description and analysis of an educational community development model that can be modified to suit the needs and philosophies of particular groups. Anyone interested in urban studies or education will find Hamilton's book unique, insightful, and inspiring.
