A book which ought to be in the hands of every full-time educator of adults' - Adult Education
The first edition of Adult and Continuing Education established itself as one of the most widely used and respected introductory texts on this important area of mainstream education. In this extensively updated edition, Peter Jarvis retains the thoroughness of the first edition whilst making substantial revisions, including the addition of a considerable amount of new material, to take into account the many changes which have occurred in the field of adult education.
