Item Description...
"The single most important contribution to our field's knowledge base in the past two decades. The authors have managed to shift the focus of adult education back to the social concerns that were taken for granted when the field was founded. We are ready for this long overdue book. Indeed, we have been yearning for this book. It will tilt our field back towards its moral center."
--B. Allan Quigley, chair, Department of Adult Education, St. Francis Xavier University, Nova Scotia

"Power in Practice is a wonderful book--full of case studies, updated theories, new perspectives, and evidence that adult education can and does change people's lives."
--Michael Newman, senior lecturer in adult education, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia

Adult educators know that they can no longer focus solely on the needs of learners without responsibly addressing the political and ethical consequences of their work. "Power in Practice" examines how certain adult education programs, practices, and policies can become a subtle part of power relationships in wider society. It provides a rich array of real-world cases that highlight the pivotal role of adult educators as "knowledge and power brokers" in the conflict between learners and the social forces surrounding them. The authors discuss how to teach responsibly, develop effective adult education programs, and provide exemplary leadership in complex political contexts, including the workplace and higher education. Educators in the middle of power struggles will learn how to become more politically aware while actively shaping their enterprises to meet important social needs.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good but...  Sep 10, 2003
This book is a wonderful book for anyone wanting to learn about the social issues in adult learning. However, although I realize this book is scholarly and widely used as a textbook for diversity courses, it is not written in succinct language in terms that someone with little teaching/training experience could understand.
