      Martin-Jones, M. and Jones, K. (2000) Multilingual Literacies:
      Reading and writing different worlds. Amsterdam: John Benjamins.

      The research in this collection lies at the interface between the
      fields of bilingualism and literacy. It deepens our understanding of
      the significance of reading and writing as social practices and opens
      up new lines of inquiry for research on multilingualism. The authors
      incorporate theoretical and methodological insights from both fields
      and provide detailed accounts of everyday practices of reading and
      writing in different multilingual settings. The focus is primarily on
      linguistic minority groups in Britain and on the language and
      literacy experiences of children and adults in rural and urban
      communities. Together, the chapters of the volume build up a rich and
      illuminating picture of specific ways in which literacy is bound up
      with cultural practices and with different ways of seeing the world.
      They also address fundamental questions about the relationship
      between language,literacy and power in multi-ethnic contexts.
