«<p>The 7th edition of <em>Foundations of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism</em> accomplishes its purpose of providing a comprehensive overview of topics related to bilingual education and bilingualism [...] the suggested further readings and resources at the end of each of the chapters are excellent tools and activities to spark a balanced and critical class discussion on the topics presented.</p>»

, Teachers College Record, September 2021

«This seventh edition does an excellent job of presenting current theory and research on both bilingualism and bilingual education. It engages with perspectives that are now central to our understanding of languaging and details the evolution of the field's thinking about various previously unquestioned views about language.»

Guadalupe Valdés, Stanford University, USA

«<p>With this edition, Foundations is uplifted to new heights, considering bilingual education not only from the theoretical and practical cornerstones on which it rests, but also from the stature it has reached. The intergenerational scholarly lenses of Baker and Wright produce here a most lucid vision of the possibilities of bilingual education when centered on people and communities.</p>»
