Encyclopedia of bilingualism and bilingual educationUser Review - Book Verdict
Just about anything anyone would want to know (and then some) about bilingualism around the world can be found in this 500,000-word encyclopedia. Noting that approximately two-thirds of the world's inhabitants are bilingual, Baker (education, Univ. of Wales) and coauthor Jones attempt to raise awareness about language diversity and help reduce the prejudice and stereotyping that surround language minorities. The encyclopedia is broken into four sections discussing individual bilingualism, languages in society, languages in contact in the world, and bilingual education. Each section offers numerous textboxes, photographs, and graphics. Cross-referencing allows the reader to access other information in the encyclopedia, while "Further Reading" sections at the end of each topic and a bibliography at the end of the encyclopedia lead the reader to information elsewhere. Though the scope is worldwide, interest will be limited owing to its cost and narrow focus. For academic libraries and larger public libraries.--Terry A. Christner, Hutchinson P.L., Kansas
