Notes:

"All the selected essays focus on changes in perspectives and perceptions about reading and writing. Throughout the book, Brandt describes how literacy skills have become intertwined with economic competition and technological change, how basic skills in one generation often prove inadequate for the next‚ and the tremendous pressure this puts on teachers, families, communities and, most of all, learners."
