This annotated bibliography lists 836 English language materials dealing with adult education in continental Europe that were written between 1975 and 1979. Organized by country, the bibliography deals with the broadest possible concept of adult education. Thus, it includes works devoted to vocational education for adults; adult secondary and postsecondary level credit courses; as well as activities of museums, art galleries, and libraries inasmuch as these involve specifically planned educational programs for individual adults or adult groups. Within the above categories, the bibliography is subdivided into categories of various institutions, methods and techniques, and subject matter. The following are representative of the categories included in the bibliography: the history of adult education; comparative studies; biographies; educational legislation; financing adult education; statewide, regional, and local-level adult education institutions and organizations; study circles and discussion groups; correspondence study, independent study, and distance education; adult basic education; retraining; the education of women; workers' education; pre-retirement education and programs for retired persons; lifelong learning; religious education; hobbies, arts, and crafts; community development; research in adult education; and the theory of adult education.
