Abstract or Description

This book is the first to propose an integrated approach to the study of bilingual education in minority and majority settings. Contributions from well-known scholars working in eight different countries in Europe and the Americas show that it is possible to bridge the gap between prestigious elite bilingualism and the bilingualism of minority communities and work towards the construction of multilingual spaces.
