Abstract

This edited collection originated in an Oxford conference, “Why English”, at which early versions of the chapters were discussed. The editors and contributors are eminent researchers in English Teacher Education, representing UK, US and Australian perspectives. As befitting its broad remit and radical intention, the book is divided into three substantive sections, 14 chapters in all with an afterword. The three major chapters in each section are followed with a shorter response chapter at the end, as an attempt to provide reflection and coherence.
