This book provides a comprehensive, authoritative introduction to the field of adult and continuing education. Two of the most respected authors in the field, Sharan B. Merriam and Ralph G. Brockett, provide an insightful analysis of this rapidly developing field and a thorough grounding in its guiding concepts, purposes, and practices of programs. This new paperback edition contains a new Preface and Epilogue which consider developments in five areas—globalization, interface between human resource development and adult education, holistic conceptions of adult learning, critical adult education and diversity, and the current state of the profession—which have influenced adult education in the past decade.
