The second volume of the New Horizon Series, this book offers an overview of a wide range of contemporary issues in education and society, including narrative explorations, various models of education and learning, study techniques, leadership, experiential learning, emotions, personal development, recreational activities, emerging technologies, and the media, among others.

All the topics discussed here currently subject to research and debate, but have been prevalent throughout history, impacting on different fields, including education, communication, and health.
