Global Issues and Adult Education brings together seven years of cutting-edge research and analysis from the Cyril O. Houle Scholars in Adult and Continuing Education. These emerging leaders in the field investigate the importance of adult education in responding to the challenges of global issues. The book is divided into five sections, each of which examines one overarching topic-globalization and the market economy, marginalized populations, environment and health, community empowerment, and lifelong learning and educational systems. Each section begins with an introduction that provides a framework for understanding the overarching issues and summarizes the chapters in the section.

From the Inside Flap:

Global Issues and Adult Education shows how adult education can be used to support the positive outcomes of globalization that lead to greater good and to thwart the outcomes that produce negative consequences. The contributors discuss the importance of grassroots activism and adult education in changing the status of marginalized groups. They also reveal how adult education can address critical health crises such as the lack of a clean, safe, and natural environment and the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa. In addition, the book is filled with compelling examples from southern Africa, Latin America, and the United States that clearly demonstrate the use of popular education for community empowerment. The concluding chapters stress the importance of lifelong learning in terms of policy development, access, technology, and distance, experiential, and workplace learning.

This vital collection of work on issues confronting our world will be a critical guide for educators of adults regardless of their field or focus.
