How could the most comprehensive book on bilingual education get even better? The master of writing on bilingual education, Baker, collaborates with a younger master, Wright. The blending of the clear voices of these two scholars, grounded in experience in different geographical regions is powerful. This new edition keeps what has made this book a classic in the bilingual education field, and enlarges it. It presents a vision of the present and future of bilingual education, without dismissing the understandings that we have built across the years.
