Here are the texts of the experts, rich with questions for researchers and an important resource for professors and their students. They tell us where the reading field has been, is now, and might be going. The earlier editions of "Theoretical Models and Processes of Reading" are known to many of us and readers of this edition will be eager to see what is new and to ponder the criteria for selection of what is old.
The collection testifies to the existence of diverse approaches to reading, encourages productive discussion, and expands the knowledge base from which we all work. The editors balance new ideas with classic articles that remind us not to reinvent the wheel through ignorance f ideas that have stood the test of time, and they present this comprehensive and diverse material in an open and nondirective format.
I find it hard to set aside my usual role of integrating the best of what I read into a new synthesis, but, following the lead of the excellent editors, I will resist the temptation to predict new directions. It is for each reader to discover these for him-- or herself-- one of the rewards of being a reader. Marie M. Clay (from the foreword)
