Reviews

"Based on research undertaken at a time of neoliberal reform in the 1990s, when middle-class Asian students from other countries entered into New Zealand's particular ethnic mix of native students from Maori and Pakeha (European settlers) backgrounds...and written in an accessible yet rigorous style, [this study] engages with a wide range of theories regarding the function of modern education...Along the way, Neriko Doerr provides many delightfully surprising insights that promise to reframe bilingual education in other national settings." * John Borneman, Princeton University "[R]elevant to a far wider audience than those concerned with New Zealand. The issues of multiculturalism, biculturalism, language teaching in school, national policies about identity as experienced by teachers, students, administrators, etc., are issues of very general interest, particularly in the United States where all that is attempted in New Zealand is open for debate. In every way, Dr. Doerr's book is exemplary of what makes anthropology essential for developing our knowledge and reforming our policies." * Herve Varenne, Columbia University
