Words in Edgeways: Radical Learning for Social Change.
This book advocates for the role of education in helping to include those who have no voice in society. The collection of writings challenges many of the prevailing attitudes that underpin education policy (especially in England) and impeaches the reforms which run counter to "real" education. The 10 articles, written over a 20-year period, include the following: "Adult Education and the Disadvantaged"; "The Personal Implications of Women's Subordination"; "Women and Adult Education"; "The Cost and Value of Adult Education to Working Class Women"; "Adult Education and the Women's Movement"; "Doing It for Ourselves"; "Learning, Liberation, and Maturity: An Open Letter to Whoever's Left"; "Feminism and Women's Education"; "The Great Tradition: A Personal Reflection"; and "Really Useful Knowledge: Linking Theory and Practice."
