Review:


"Critical Pedagogies and Language Learning, is an important book that brings together a wide variety of critical perspectives on language teach and learning." The Canadian Modern Language Review

"the concept of the book-the melding of language learning with aspects of social change-not only becomes fascinating but also offers new perspectives and recommendations for parents, educators, school administrators, and politicians willing to improve the system. Well-written and articulated, excellently documented, and with convincing examples, Norton and Toohey present this innovative research in an unprecedented manner, bringing theory and practice together to transform existing social relations in the interest of schools and communities.
