This formidable selection of papers reflects the psycholinguistic and sociolinguistic underpinnings of the interface between language and education. Following an introduction that positions the field of educational linguistics historically and conceptually, the volume presents 15 contributions by leading scholars that cover the four areas most central to the field:<br />- Language teaching, language learning and literacy (Widdowson, Bialistok, Cohen &amp; Allison);<br />- Language testing (Bachman, Davies, and Shohamy);<br />- Multilingualism, minority languages and language planning (Bratt-Paulston, Fishman, Lambert, Amara, de Bot &amp; van Els);<br />- Language policy (Clyne, Tucker, Donato &amp; Murday, McNamara &amp; Lo Bianco, and Hornberger).<br /><i>New Perspectives and Issues in Educational Language Policy</i> is published in honour of Bernard Dov Spolsky and reflects his impact on applied linguistics in general and educational linguistics in particular. The breadth and coverage makes this an indispensable title for future research in the field of educational linguistics.
