Dons and Workers is a history of university adult education in England. It focuses on the University of Oxford whose leading contribution to this movement presents an unfamiliar portrait of this "elitist" university and its influence on the nation. Lawrence Goldman considers the relationship between intellectuals and the working class over the past century and a half, examining the role of adult education in the evolution from late-Victorian liberalism to twentieth-century socialism.
