Summary

First published in 1984, this collection of essays was the first account of the development of the University of the Third Age in Britain (U3A). Changing employment patterns and increasing pressure on traditional areas of secondary and higher education has led to the idea that learning can be a life-long process. The theories of U3As in Britain, their development under the influence of European models, and the major influences on them are analysed. The authors argue that the consequences of social change and the problems economic, social, political, sexual and racial inequalities that exist are often reinforced by the inequalities in our educational system, and consequently respond to the challenges posed. CA comprehensive title, this book will be useful to any students with an interest in adult and continuing education.
