Because the rest of the world is more advanced in bilingual education than the United States, most of the examples were from Europe and Asia.
This is a sequel to another book, so there are several references to the first book.
Several chapters would be good for teacher education classes. A few chapters would be excellent for linguistics classes.
I was disappointed by much of the book, so I wouldn't recommend it, as a whole.
