The Antigonish Movement flourished over fifty years ago but it continues to fascinate and challenge Canadians today. In the 1930s, as now, many people believed that the problems and injustices of life resulted from forces beyond their control. Moses Coady could not have disagreed more. With missionary zeal he implored people to change themselves and their society. Liberation, he insisted, could be achieved through adult education. Do we today have the confidence to make such a claim? The Antigonish Movement is a symbol of an activist heritage in adult education. In this book, Anne Alexander examines the background to this important movement, its activities and the individuals involved, in order to show its continuing relevance to practitioners of adult education today.
