This is an excellent book, still worth consulting for research and practice purposes. It does not only provide us with information on the origins and history of education in general and adult education, lifelong education/lifelong learning in particular, but also the connection between education/learning and development. For a student of adult education and lifelong learning, the book is a comprehensive text of theories of education and the relationship between adult education and development, with ideas still relevant to today’s academic discourses in many societies of the world. If you want to understand theories and educational activities that have shaped and paved the path to the concept of lifelong learning as we know it today, read Finger's and Asun’s Adult Education at the Crossroads: Learning our way out. Short Review by Dr Haaveshe Nekongo-Nielsen, Senior Lecturer of Lifelong Learning, University of Namibia.
