Ntiri, Daphne W., Ed.
This book contains four papers, each a chapter, that share in the discourse of Paulo Freire and provide varying perspectives on the ways to advance social transformation and achieve a politically literate citizenry as a democratic enterprise. The following four papers are included: "Exploring the Limits of Participatory Democracy: Prudent and Decisive Use of Authority in Adult Education" (Ian Baptiste); "Adult Learning and American Political Debate: Achieving Political Literacy Today" (Ronald Aronson and Karen McDevitt); "A Delicate Balancing Act: Adult Education in South Africa" (James B. Stewart); and "Democratization and Adult Education in Africa" (Kassu Gebremariam). An introduction by the editor, Daphne Ntiri, provides an overview of the papers and the viewpoints of the research. Each paper contains a list of references. (KC)
