Who could ask for more distinguished authors? From William M. Anderson and Patricia Shehan Campbell on down the list, you have the best knowledge/classroom-based writers in our field. These volumes provide the help you need to face that challenging new cultural mix in your school. They won't collect dust on your shelf.
