Bordia, Anil, Ed.; And Others
The book contains articles and excerpts from works of leading educators and scholars associated with problems of adult education in India. The readings are presented in five sections. The first section, Historical Perspective, deals with the progress of adult education (from the beginning of British rule to the present day) and extension services. The next section contains articles on philosophy and objectives, describing the importance and necessity of adult education. Section 3, Adult Literacy, begins with an article describing the reality of the situation followed by several articles dealing with methods, objectives, and contents of various regional literacy programs. The fourth section, on methods, covers a wide range of subjects including the roles of writers, mass media, and research and evaluation. The final section of readings describes programs for urban adult education, special groups (teachers, army personnel, workers, physicians, and farmers), university adult education, and other agencies (industry, libraries, museums, and professional associations). A 12-page bibliography and an index conclude the book. (Author/MS)
