MEDIA REVIEWS

"Milana and Nesbit's contribution to the Palgrave series on Studies in Global Citizenship Education and Democracy is much needed. ... this is an excellent and captivating volume that leaves the reader hungering for greater depth and analysis. The case studies are almost all interesting and informative and they are a welcome first step in the growing area of policy analysis in adult education and lifelong learning." (Amy D. Rose, Adult Education Quarterly, Vol. 67 (1), February, 2017)

"This is a very authoritative resource book on the current status of policies on adult education and lifelong learning in the countries and international agencies represented. It will definitely serve well as a professional guide for any reader to acquire a realistic understanding of the context in order to prepare practitioners and policy makers to link rhetoric with practice in the field of adult education and lifelong learning." (Tiedao Zhang, International Review of Education, August, 2016)

"This book ... reflect historical trajectories which have led to policy intersections between adult education and higher education and the inclusion of chapters from lesser-written-about countries such as Palestine, Scotland, the Czech Republic, South Korea and Ghana. ... As a complementary text to the more mechanistic, but more global, coverage of country contexts that is now provided through UNESCO's Global Reports on Adult Learning and Education, this book provides a useful and insightful contribution." (Julia Preece, International Journal of Continuing Education and Lifelong Learning, Vol. 8 (2), May, 2016)
