This book confirms the significance of social capital as an analytical tool, while challenging the basis on which current policy is being developed. It offers a wealth of evidence on a topic that has become central to contemporary government; provides a detailed empirical investigation of the relationship between social capital, knowledge creation and lifelong learning; relates the findings to wider policy debates; questions the dominant theoretical models of social capital; and confronts the assumption of many policy makers that the obvious solution to social problems is to 'invest in social capital'.The book is aimed at researchers in education, policy studies and urban studies, as well as those concerned with an understanding of contemporary policy concerns. It provides readers with a detailed analysis of relevant evidence, as well as a trenchant critique of current conceptual and policy preoccupations.

John Field, Division of Academic Innovation and Continuing Education, University of Stirling

Review:

John Field is a leading international thinker in the lifelong learning field. His new book will contribute to the developing debate on the relevance of social capital to social policy analysis in the UK. Highly recommended. Alan Tuckett, Director, NIACE (National Institute of Adult Continuing Education)

[Social capital and lifelong learning] is a thought provoking book, very relevant to those concerned with community development as well as to those involved in community education directly. Community Development Journal

This book provides a fascinating account of the real nature of learning that should challenge those who fail to acknowledge the broader contexts in which people become 'educated'. Widening Participation and Lifelong Learning

Field has pursued a complex phenomenon with vigour and depth while refusing any easy way out. We know more about social capital and learning than we did before. ... Having recently presented a course on social learning", I would certainly consider John Field's book a key text for any such future effort." Studies in the Education of Adults
