Introduction: Multilingualism and Bilingual Education: Politics, Policies, and Practices in a Globalized Society
This volume focuses on the conditions of bilingualism and bilingual education across the new global society and on the demands and challenges placed on them by the many features and processes of globalization. The authors examine the intrinsic and complex characteristics of multilingual societies and bilingualism, discuss historical and current issues of multilingualism and language teaching, and present models of bilingual education. The chapters are written in either native American English or in World English styles. This organic linguistic authenticity is a significant feature of the volume, uncommonly found in multilingualism and bilingual education literature.
