Review:

This book is an excellent edited collection that focuses on the New Literacy Studies as well as, and in relation to, other theoretical orientations. This book does a first-rate job in the way it uses specific instances from the authors’ data to argue that literacy does work in multiple, complex ways.

(Dana J. Wilber, Montclair State University, in E-Learning Volume 3, Number 4)

This book is an excellent read because of the quality of its content and the clarity with which its ideas are presented.

(Alex Poole, Western Kentucky University, in Language, Culture and Curriculum 20:1)

Pahl and Rowsell have produced a timely theoretical integration that establishes leadership on the cutting edge of literacy research. "Travel Notes" is a valuable book for any literacy researcher or classroom teacher's library.

(Joanne Larson, Associate Professor and Chair, Teaching and Curriculum University of Rochester)

This exciting collection of studies locates the study of literacy in broader communicative practices. Each study is a pleasure to read and takes our understanding forward.

(Dr David Barton, Director, Literacy Research Centre, University of Lancaster)
