Adult Literacy in Developing Countries: A Contemporary Annotated Bibliography.
Puchner, Laurel D.
This bibliography provides a list of 65 selected works on the topic of adult literacy in developing countries. It is a contemporary list, including only works published in the last 15 years. The works are organized into subject categories. Works are listed only once; in cases where a work could be listed under more than one category, it is listed according to its most salient theme. Each entry consists of these components: author, date, title, source and pagination or place and date of publication, and annotation. The 65 works are organized into these 12 subject categories: general, cultural and psychological issues, instructional issues, gender, language and literacy, literacy and health, workplace literacy, planning and implementation of adult literacy programs, assessment and evaluation, post-literacy, policy issues in literacy development, and national literacy campaigns and programs.
