This handbook is unique in its focus on bilingual theories, issues on theteaching of bilinguals, bilingual policies abroad, and current research onbilinguals as all of this related in some way to the Spanish-speaking world.There is currently no other book like it available, despite the growing numberof courses teaching Spanish Bilingualism. It is anticipated that this newhandbook will be of great interest to linguists, sociolinguists, languageacquisitionists, as well as teachers who deal with topics relating tobilingualism as it relates to Spanish speakers around the world. Though workhas been done looking at bilingualism and multilingualism, this book providesa valuable addition that deals with an area where a comprehensive work such asthis is indeed lacking
