'This is an essential collection for anybody interested in learner autonomy. Drawing on perspectives from different cultural and professional contexts, it offers a fresh view of issues in autonomy. One of its particular strengths lies in the way in which it brings together accounts offering direct engagement with personal experience, capturing a sense of the excitement and discovery inherent in this, and more conceptual papers that challenge common assumptions or invite readers to explore and reflect on their institutional contexts more carefully. It makes for an entertaining and informative mix of papers which is rewarding both practically and intellectually.' - Dr Keith Richards, Director, Language Studies Unit, Aston University, UK
'...the present volume provides not only a rich overview of culturally mediated instances of learner autonomy but also an eminently practical resource guide for current or prospective teachers...In short, for anybody interested in learner autonomy from a cutural perspective, this book has something to offer.' - Claudia Kunschak, Language Awareness
