In this second, fully revised edition, the 10 volume Encyclopedia of Language and Education offers the newest developments including two new volumes of research and scholarly content essential to the field of language teaching and learning in the age of globalization. In the selection of topics and contributors, the Encyclopedia reflects the depth of disciplinary knowledge, breadth of interdisciplinary perspective, and diversity of sociogeographic experience in the field.
Throughout, there is an inclusion of contributions from non-English speaking and non-western parts of the world, providing truly global coverage. Furthermore, the authors have sought to integrate these voices more fully into the whole, rather than as special cases or international perspectives in separate sections.
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 publication of this work charts the deepening and broadening of the field of language and education since the publication of the first Encyclopedia.
