    First published in 1987, Adult Education: As Social Policy intends to provide an introduction to the social policy analysis of adult education, contributing to the larger literature around lifelong or continuing education. The roots of policy in alternative social welfare models are traced to their ideological sources and to the origins of adult education theory itself. The development of professionalism is also considered in relation to policy analysis and there is a case study of major policy documents to illustrate the analysis. The book will be of interest to students of pedagogy, education, and policy.
