L'Education populaire en Europe. 2. Scandinavie (Mass Adult Education in Europe. 2. Scandinavia).
Trichaud, Lucien
Covering Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland in turn, this comparative survey of mass adult education in Scandinavia provides a historical and descriptive background on each country, followed by the development and present situation of folk high schools, cooperatives, university extension, correspondence study, labor education, mass media, and other forms and means of general education. Careers and accomplishments of major figures in Scandinavian adult education (chiefly Nicolas S.F. Grundtvig and Christian Kold) are reviewed; and the effects of the rise of nationalism, ethnic consciousness, and agrarian reform on the nature and course of Scandinavian adult education, are traced in detail. Educational services, adult and otherwise, within the setting of Swedish mixed socialism are also discussed. The document includes an index of names, places, and organizations cited. (LY)
