Notes:

"John Ohliger was a radical educator who deeply valued social democracy. Many of his contemporaries found his extreme liberal approach to adult education problematic and peripheral to the professionalization they believed modern practice required. The authors of this volume offer insight into Ohliger's eclectic collection of writings and present a comprehensive assessment of the contributions of this important figure."
