Adult Education in Continental Europe: An Annotated Bibliography of English-Language Materials, 1945-1969.
This annotated bibliography aims at bringing together most of the English-language materials on adult education in Continental Europe published during the 25 years since the end of the Second World War. In accord with the variety of concepts and differences of opinion on definitions of what does or does not constitute adult education, which abound among European adult educators in the countries covered, and wishing to make the bibliography as broad and useful to as wide a field as possible, the broadest possible concept of adult education verging on education of adults was used in selecting items for inclusion in the bibliography. Subjects include vocational education for adults, training in business and industry, adult secondary and university level credit study, activities of museums, art galleries and libraries, and liberal adult education. Most of the material covered by this bibliography is mainly descriptive, including many observations and impressions of English and North American adult educators visiting European countries. The bibliography is organized by country, with a section on Europe and a section on Scandinavia. A total of 25 countries is covered. A list of periodicals systematically searched for materials is included. A total of 857 annotations are entered in this bibliography. An additional 102 sources available in Joint Publication Research Service Periodicals in microfilm only are included. (Author/CK)
