Reviews

"Luis Moll has done an invaluable job in compiling and editing Vygotsky and Education, a major volume of original papers focusing on the educational implications of Vygotsky's psychological theory...Moll's introduction to the volume is an unusually informative and useful treatise in its own right. It elucidates several key issues in Vygotsky's thought in a way that goes clearly beyond the typical standards in the genre of introductions." The Quarterly Newsletter of the Laboratory of Comparative Human Cognition "Vygotsky and Education is a useful book; it gives a true picture of Vygotskian scholarship in the West including its achievemnts, failures, and questions posed for future research." Alex Kozulin, American Journal of Psychology
