Description - The Political Economy of Adult Education and Development by Frank Youngman
This work argues that adult educators need to understand how different development strategies and biases impact on their own work. The aim of the book is to provide a theory of applied political economy to explain the interface between society and adult education in developing countries. It introduces the main competing theories of development, and examines specific issues affecting adult education: the impact of foreign aid; class, gender and ethnic inequalities; and the relationship between state and civil society in peripheral capitalist societies. The book draws on a wealth of empirical information from around the world, with particular attention to Botswana. It elaborates a theory of the political economy of adult education in the context of development and demonstrates the applicability of this theoretical framework, including its usefulness in generating appropriate research agendas.
