From the Publisher
“Aside from the conceptual issues highlighted above, the detailed discussions of multilingual education policy alone make the book worth buying for scholars of language in education issues.” (Journal of Linguistic Anthropology, 10 April 2012)
"It goes without saying that the book has merit in the field of bilingual education. It is not only a desirable material to have for all scholars interested in furthering their understanding of this area. Because of its comprehensive nature and its presentation of solid arguments, it is also an ideal text to use in graduate and undergraduate courses." (Applied Linguistics, 2011)
"This book will become a classic in the bilingual education literature. It provides a comprehensive overview of bilingual education at the levels of philosophy, policy, provision and practice. It has international relevance, global understandings and is suitable for a worldwide readership."
Colin Baker, Bangor University
"Ofelia García writes with wisdom, heart, and an unshakable conviction that bilingual education is the best education for all children in today’s world. A must read for educators everywhere."
Nancy Hornberger, University of Pennsylvania
"Ofelia (and Hugo) have unemployed a lot of researchers. After this book, there is no need for another book on bi/multilingual education for a decade. With its creativity, new conceptualisations, enormous worldwide knowledge and unusual combination of path-breaking theory and insider knowledge about schools, this is, The Book on bilingual education."
Tove Skutnabb-Kangas, University of Roskilde
