An Introduction to Education Studies presents a concise overview for students who are new to this area of academic study. Part 1 introduces the reader to the main themes they will encounter in their study of education such as the sociology of education, the philosophy of education, comparative education, and ethics for educators. Part 2 explores the contexts within which education takes place in order to stimulate further thinking about education in action. Issues such as disaffection, pupil voice and breaking barriers to learning are introduced to give the reader a feel for such issues and how they might approach them. Through discussions of relevant literature and research, and the use of case studies and exploratory activities, students are encouraged to actively engage with their learning about theories and disciplines within the study of education and the contexts in which learners live and work. Each chapter is written in an accessible style and provides the reader with start points for further study. This book serves as a true course companion to meet the needs of students and lecturers working on Education Studies programmes. Prospective teachers may also find the book of interest as the subject matter is discussed in terms of theory and practical applications in a range of educational contexts.

This first truly comprehensive interdisciplinary, international critique of theory and practice in lifelong learning as it relates to later life is an absolute tour de force. Alexandra Withnall, Universities of Warwick and Leicester, UK. This is a book that needed to be written: it provides a most thorough and skilful analysis of a comprehensive range of contemporary literature about learning in later life from many localities and countries of the world. Peter Jarvis, Professor Emeritus, University of Surrey Impressive in its scope this handbook seeks to describe older learning critically within the lifelong learning literature at the same time that it makes a strong and persuasive case for taking older learning seriously in our postmodern world. Kenneth Wain, University of Malta Lifelong learning in later life is an essential handbook for a wide range of people who work alongside older adults in varied contexts. This handbook brings together both orthodox approaches to educational gerontology and fresh perspectives on important emerging issues faced by seniors around the globe. Issues discussed include the social construction of ageing, the importance of lifelong learning policy and practice, participation in later life learning, education of marginalised groups within older communities, inter-generational learning, volunteering and ‘active ageing’, the political economy of older adulthood, learning for better health and well-being, and the place of seniors in a learning society. Brian Findsen is a professor of adult education, Faculty of Education, University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand. His writings are usually constructed within a social justice framework such as The Fourth Sector: Adult and Community Education in Aotearoa New Zealand (edited with John Benseman and Miriama Scott in 1996) and Learning later (2005). Marvin Formosa is a lecturer in the European Centre for Gerontology, University of Malta, Msida, Malta. In addition to various articles focusing on critical educational gerontology, recent and forthcoming books include Social Class Dynamics in Later Life (2009) and Social Class in Later Life: Power, Identity and Lifestyle (with Paul Higgs, 2012).
