One expects in a handbook of this nature, to find a comprehensive survey of the complex field of literacy around the globe. However, what sets this book apart from others is the undoubted ability of the editors to bring together a diverse group of highly talented scholars pursuing innovative lines of inquiry. The HB thus encapsulates their willingness to be proactive in fostering exciting, innovative directions for the future. All this will ensure that the volume will remain highly topical and current – a real pacesetter in the field for years to come. —Roger Openshaw, Professor and Personal Chair in History of Education,Massey University Institute of Education,New Zealand.
