Editorial Reviews

'One of the major strengths of the volume is that it contributes to the field of educational linguistics in two ways: (1) by expanding the community of scholars with voices from different geographic regions of the world, as well as with the voices of emerging scholars, representing diverse methodological approaches, and (2) by explicitly focusing on advocacy and offering useful examples. The authors in the handbook provide an excellent comprehensive overview of the field by showing that research in educational linguistics can produce knowledge that can give agency to educators, students, families, and thus create streams of resistance and action that can effect change in arenas where education and language intersect. This handbook is an essential volume for any student or researcher interested in the issues surrounding language and education in multicultural settings, and it will definitely inspire thinking, theorizing, and action among new and established researchers.' - Zsuzsanna Zsubrinszky, Budapest Business School, The LINGUIST List
