From the reviews:
"Scholars and practitioners can use the book as a reference, dipping in and out of topics of interest and navigating to key terms and additional references as and when required. ... this encyclopaedia is a welcome intervention for me, indeed a great addition to my library. ... it will also be a very welcome reference text to beginning educational researchers, students, and practitioners ... ."
