Raymond Williams (1921-88) was one of post-war Britain's most influential and prolific thinkers. From 1946-61 Williams worked as a teacher in university adult education, and in these years he produced such seminal works as Culture and Society (1958) and The Long Revolution (1961). This volume brings together an extensive and varied collection of Williams's writing from this neglected period, most of it unavailable for decades. The essays document the evolution of Williams's thinking from Politics and Letters in the 1940s to the publication of The Long revolution. The editors provide background essays which constitute a detailed and sympathetic introduction to the work of the younger Williams. Border Country: Raymond Williams in adult education is an intriguing study of the making of an intellectual, and reveals Williams's searching analysis of the conditions for a genuine learning society. It will be of interest to students of literature, cultural studies, sociology, politics, as well as education.
