Comparative Adult Education: State of the Art with Annotated Resource Guide. Monographs on Comparative and Area Studies in Adult Education.
Charters, Alexander N.; Siddiqui, Dilnawaz A.
Part I of this document analyzes the field of comparative adult education, and Part II contains annotations on selected resources considered most relevant to the field. The first part identifies and discusses major areas of weakness in the field. It covers the essence of social science research, the evolution of comparative adult education methods, and selected events and activities in comparative adult education. The section concludes by acknowledging strong evidence of growing new internationalism and of the need for global exchange of values across societal systems and ideologies. A 44-item reference list is provided. Part II, the resource guide, is organized into three major categories, which indicate resources in and related to comparative adult education. Category A presents two types of annotations: items related to comparative education as a field of study and items related to comparative adult education as a field of study. Category B deals with specific studies that compare principles and/or practices and people involved in adult education. Its five sections are international education, comparative adult education at the intranational level, comparative adult education at the international level, comparative education other than adult education, and comparative adult education at the national level. Category C consists of bibliographies and terminologies. Each abstract is preceded by a listing of which countries and themes the source covers. (YLB)
