Synopsis: This volume presents an alternative view of adult education, exploring the poverty of its analysis and the narrowness of its approaches to work and education. Approaching the issues of work from a critical, theoretical and feminist perspective, the book is based on the premise that our views of work, productivity, progress and economic growth are ultimately destructive to people and the environment. Mechthild Hart looks at the link between the international and sexual division of labour, and at the relationship between work, nature, and technology. She moves the analysis from the usual focus in adult education literature on skills and skill deficits, concentrating instead on the educational potential of work itself. By linking issues of gender and Third World development, an alternative concept of work and productivity is developed, serving as the basis for new approaches and paradigms in adult education. The author draws on over 20 years of studying critical social, political and economic, educational and feminist theory, as well as issues related to Third World development. This book should be of interest to students and professionals in adult education, sociology and women's studies.
