Editorial Reviews

The book makes an interesting and timely contribution to our understandings of linguistic inequalities and bilingual program implementation. This book points to exciting possibilities for collaborative research in the areas of learning theories, sociology and anthropology, political science, cognitive musicology, pedagogy, language acquisition, and neurological science. - Debbie Cole, University of Texas Pan American - Linguist List 18.258
