Adult Education in Germany.
This study is limited essentially to adult education in West Germany, although the historical sections include references to earlier experiences and experiments in areas now Russian-occupied. The terms "adult edcuation" and "workers' education" are clarified. Both are presented as separate movements. Brief reference is made to political, social, and economic conditions which have prevailed in the community life of Germany over the last century. Concentration is on the work of the Folk High Schools and the Trade Unions. Focus is placed on the special elements in German political, social, and industrial life which resulted in the German workers being excluded from practical politics until 1918; attention is also directed to the speed of Germany's industrialization.
