Title: Sociocultural Theory and the Genesis of Second Language Development
Written By: James P. Lantolf
Steven L Thorne
Description:

Integrates theory, research, and practice on the learning of second and
foreign languages as informed by sociocultural and activity theory. It
familiarizes students, teachers, and other researchers who do not work

as they relate to second language research. The book also describes and
illustrates the use of activity theory to support practical and
conceptual innovations in second language education.
