This monograph is intended to present the structural image of adult education/further education in the Federal Republic of Germany. It first covers such areas as the size of the country and its individual states and population and employment. Following a survey of the educational system, legislation concerning adult education/further education is described for each of the states. Expenditures on further education and focal points of research in the framework of adult education are also briefly addressed. Attention is given to reform and reform tendencies in the sphere of adult education/further education. The implications of cultural federalism and pluralism are then discussed for adult education. The largest section of the monograph describes adult education institutions, including closed adult education (adult education in the public service, enterprises as providers of further education), institutions of open further education (trade union adult education, the German Trades Union Federation-DGB, "Work and Life" institution, the German Office Employees' Trade Union), denominational adult education (in Catholic institutions, in Protestant institutions), folk high schools (Volkshochschule), adult education and its institutions in rural districts, and other establishments (radio and television stations, distance study, second chance education.)
