Title: Encyclopedia of Language and Education
Edited By: Nancy H. Hornberger
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-0-387-30424-3
Description:

*The Encyclopedia is a necessary reference set for every university and
college library in the world that serves a faculty or school of education.

*The Encyclopedia has more than 250 contributors drawn from numerous
countries. Its reviews present information and authoritative insights that
are relevant to every country and to every language.

*Each volume contains about 20-30 reviews. For some topics, teams of
contributors have worked to produce a single review.

*Each state-of-the-art review has about 4000 words of text and follows a
similar structure.

*Most contributors give coverage of early developments in their topic,
major contributions, work in progress, problems and difficulties, and
future directions

*The aim of the reviews is to give readers access to the international
literature and research on each topic.

*The text of each review is followed by a reference list containing about
30 key references mentioned in the text.

This Encyclopedia is a necessary reference set for every university and
college library in the world that serves a faculty or school of education.
The Encyclopedia aims to speak to a prospective readership that is
multinational, and to do so as unambiguously as possible. Because each
book-size volume deals with a discrete and important subject in language
and education, these state-of-the-art volumes also offer highly
authoritative course textbooks in the areas suggested by their titles.

The more than 250 scholars contributing to the Encyclopedia hail from all
continents of our globe and from 41 countries; they represent a great
diversity of linguistic, cultural, and disciplinary traditions. For all
that, what is most impressive about the contributions gathered here is the
unity of purpose and outlook they express with regard to the central role
of language as both vehicle and mediator of educational processes and to
the need for continued and deepening research into the limits and
possibilities that implies.
