The impact of continuing education on the complex problems encountered in developing and implementing overall manpower policies is discussed and documented in this anthology. An introductory chapter on adult education and the labor force is followed by surveys and critiques of manpower policy and the organization of the labor market in Sweden, the United States, and Canada (especially Quebec), issues in management development and in the manpower planning role of the trade unions, experiences and accomplishments of a joint research commission during the modernization of a Quebec pulp and paper mill, and case studies of employee training and education at an aluminum plant and a shipbuilding installation elsewhere in the province. Needs in such areas as improved manpower services and the control of seasonal unemployment are indicated. Included is a bibliography of books and periodicals. (ly)
