This book, originally published in 1992, contains a wealth of experience in the development of community education from and about Third World countries. The influence of Paulo Freire permeates the work, although each country and continent has had to seek its own path and its own methodology. With contributions from a wide variety of countries – from Nigeria and Tanzania, Thailand and Korea to Mexico, Central America and Costa Rica – the book offers a framework in which theory and practice are mutually supportive.
