Summary Flexibility has become central to much policy and academic debate: individuals, organizations and societies are becoming more flexible in order to participate in the ongoing processes of lifelong learning. "Changing Places" explores how the learning society has developed in recent years, challenges contemporary trends, explores the uncertainty and ambivalence of the processes of change, and suggests different forms of engagement with them. This is an important text for policy makers, workplace trainers and those working in the field of adult, further and higher education.
