dc.description.abstractThis is an incisive critique of adult education highlighting its direct bearing on the practice of democracy. It makes a rewarding and insightful read, arguing for Higher Education ( HE) as a public good and not just a commodity for the promotion of a neoliberal global philosophy, corroding the very soul of HE . It awakens reflection on a whole range of themes related to globalization. Neoliberalism idealizes market-oriented progressivism and, on a global scale, views adult education merely as a means of training for capitalist ends, supporting the narrow financial interests of the very rich of this world and their transnational corporations. A predominantly capitalist grasp of adult education with its direct relevance to a westernized hegemonic globalization is what this publication very soundly argues against. [excerpt]en_GB
