Review:

The volume is a marvellous corrective to the relative neglect of multilingual and multi-script literacies in much literacy research. It is especially satisfying to see this important new volume framed by an icon of multilingual research and multilingualism sensibilities, Jim Cummins, in a foreword; and an icon of literacy ethnographies, Brian Street, in an afterword. - Joseph Lo Bianco - Language & Education Vol. 18, No 4, 2004"

The continua model is a valuable tool for researchers, educational practitioners and policy makers who are committed to pursuing just language policies. - Benedicta Egbo - International Journal of Bilingual Education & Bilingualism Vol. 8 No 1, 2005

This varied collection provides a valuable resource for those who have a professional concern with literacy, including researchers, classroom teachers, and administrators who must make language and instructional programs choices that speak both to theoretical and practical instructional concerns. - Jenny Cook-Gumperz - December 2004 issue (35:4) of Anthropology & Education Quarterly.

The value of this model is demonstrated in this book. - David I Hanauer - Language in Society 34:2
