    Reviews & endorsements

    "Kozulin, Gindis, Ageyev, and Miller have masterfully brought together a series of papers that create a dynamic picture of the past, present, and future of Vygotsky's theories in various socio-cultural contexts...Clearly written and well organized...Does an excellent job of describing the nature of the socio-cultural approach to education as deeply philosphical and pragmatic at the same time." Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology

    "Perhaps the most comprehensive treatment of Vygotskian educational thought and practice currently available, this volume features an illustrious array of scholars from across the globe. Particularly enlightening is their explication of how Vygotsky's psychological theory can affect different school settings and situations. Highly recommended." Choice

    "The contributing authors are to be commended for striking a balance between working toward a clarified, unified, and thus "authoritative" canonical version of Vygotskian ideas, on the one hand, and opening the theor to multiple influences and interpretations as it is applied to multiple settings and problems, on the other hand. They should also be praised for living up to the editors' claim to present all the major concepts of Vygotskian educational theory. For this coverage and clarification alone, the work is definitely a worthwhile addition to graduate courses as well as practicing researchers' libraries." Anthropology and Education Quarterly

    "Very Comprehensive...A particular strength of the collection is the way that the authors combine theory with description and analysis of specific examples of educational design and practice...Will be of interest to readers concerned with the design and development of learning materials and environments in any context...Strongly recommended...A rich source to dip into for ideas and stimulation." British Journal of Educational Technology
