From the Publisher"[T]his two volume set offers a comprehensive overview of the study and practice of literacy in the United States . . . It should become a valued reference to those in the field and a wondrous source of information for anyone even remotely interested in the subject of literacy. Highly recommended for large public and academic libraries."
"[I]mpressive . . . academic libraries supporting education courses, in particular, will find this a natural choice."
Against the Grain
"[I]t is surprising that a comprehensive encyclopedia on literacy and its many dimensions has not appeared earlier . . . Throughout, literacy is examined not just as the capability of an individual to read and write but also as a dynamic force in society . . . substantial articles . . . unquestionable value for library collections and curriculum centers serving teachers in training, practitioners in the field, and researchers."
