    Abstract

    This book comprises a collection of papers drawn from a conference in the University of Joensuu, Finland in May 2005. The objective of the conference was to examine issues of exclusion/inclusion and to explore the nature of participation and non-participation in adult education in a globalised w^orld. The collection gives readers a critical and thoughtful analysis on a selection of topics in the field. The articles are arranged in four parts using headings that represent contemporary topics of concern to adult educators. This gives the book a coherent structure whereby the reader may dip in and out of each part depending on their interests. How^ever as the first part, 'Critical perspectives' provides a useful context for the book thus it is a good place to begin.
