Professor García was first introduced to me in a letter from the publishers
Indeed, the lenses through which bilingualism and bilingual education are examined in this book extend and, at the same time, deepen our definitions and knowledge. Baker provides us not simply with binoculars, but with powerful lenses through which the multiple visions of bilingualism and bilingual education are reflected. Professor García was first introduced to me in a letter from the publishers. The letter simply said: 'I have been in contact with one of the present top-rate people in the States'. So have I, and I totally agree.
This is the most comprehensive, up-to-date volume on the state of bilingual education in the United States and, in particular, on effective curriculum and instructional approaches. Eugene García, a renowned authority on bilingual education, depicts the vast scope and complexity of the problem of educating English language learners. He sets forth a conceptual framework to guide educational policy and practice that reflects democratic ideals and values.
