University adult educators who wish to develop their links with contemporary social movements have much to learn from this invisible and suppressed tradition of connecting learning with struggle. The Australian case is presented as a microcosm of more universal problems and possibilities in reconnecting education with social and political action.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Popular Education: Engaging the Academy - International Perspectives, p. 100-109||Publisher:||National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE)||Place of Publication:||Leicester, England||ISBN:||1862012091||Field of Research (FOR):||130199 Education systems not elsewhere classified||HERDC Category Description:||B1 Chapter in a Scholarly Book||Other Links:||http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/11547866
