Murphy, Lawrence R. – Review of Higher Education, 1982
Three publications on adult education (by K. Patricia Cross, Carol Aslavian and Henry M. Brickell, and Caryl Chudwin and Rita Durant) are reviewed and apparently indicate that American higher education is about to embark on a renaissance of adult learning.
