       This book asks a significant question at a critical time: Who should benefit from adult education? As adult education moves closer to the center of the struggle for knowledge and power in society, thoughtful educators know that they can no longer focus solely on the needs of learners without responsibly addressing the political and ethical consequences of their work.

Above all, Power in Practice examines how power relationships in the wider society are manifested in the distinct programs, practices, and policies of adult education. Throughout the book, there is a rich array of real-world cases that highlight the pivotal role of adult educators as 'knowledge and power brokers' in the conflict between learners and the social forces surrounding them. The authors discuss how to teach responsibly, develop effective adult education programs, and provide exemplary leadership in complex political contexts, including the workplace and higher education. Educators in the middle of power struggles will learn how to become more politically aware while actively shaping their enterprises to meet important social needs.

In exploring how power works in the practice of adult education, Power in Practice offers numerous insights and strategies for making adult education more socially responsible and democratic.
