Originally published in 1985, this book argues that lifelong education has a vital part to play in fostering international political understanding. It also demonstrates how educational planners can use the concept of lifelong education to deal with some of the contradictions inherent in much of the educational system in the industrialised world. There is a case study from Japan and China and chapters on the role of culture, migration and labour mobility.
