Sylvia Scribner's research and theory have been monumental in forming the emergent field of cultural psychology. Her studies of reasoning and thinking in their cultural and activity contexts added new concepts, methods, and findings to what many are now viewing as a distinctive branch of psychological studies. She was among the first to combine ethnographic studies with experimental studies in order to determine relationships among indigenous literacy and logical activities and their cognitive outcomes. Mind and Social Practice brings together published and previously unpublished work from Sylvia Scribner's productive and wide-ranging career. The book is arranged chronologically and includes five section introductions by the editors, placing Scribner's work in the context of her life, her commitments, and the political and intellectual events of the times. Her later, more theoretically rich writing is enhanced by an appreciation of her earlier work.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"With her cognitive study of work, Sylvia Scribner chartered yet another area for a sociocultural study of human activity. The readers of this volume are invited to continue the exploration using Sylvia Scribner's unfinished 'map'." Contemporary Psychology
"The volume is a wonderful illustration of Scribner's thinking and work over time, and the editors have arranged the volume in such a way as to place Scribner's work in the context of her life, her commitments, and the political and intellectual events of the times. Researchers will find this volume useful, not only because it brings together a number of Scribner's writings but also as a tool for reflecting on their own evolving theorizing and its sociohistorical development. The volume is also valuable for use in graduate courses that examine learning and schooling in cultural and social context and as a coherent example of a researcher interweaving theory and practice and her response to the moral obligations she owned as a researcher." Joanna O. Masingila, Anthropology & Education Quarterly
