This book explores the relatively ignored issue of the social context and dimensions of learning for older adults. It combines international perspectives drawn from adult education, sociology, social gerontology, and critical theory to investigate the social and material circumstances of older adults' lives and connected learning. The central argument is that educators and practitioners will better understand older adults' learning by more fully addressing social context, the social construction of aging, older adults' interaction with social institutions, the nature of social change to which they contribute, and the social issues they face.
