This fascinating study shows how young children work simultaneously in two languages to decode unfamiliar text, negotiate meaning and explore the differences between their languages. Set in the context of current research and practice in relation to multiliteracy, personal and learner identity, and issues in translation, the book explores dual language books and their use since the 1980s. Developed from action research work by primary teachers, the book follows seven children aged 6 to 10 as they use dual language storybooks to learn to read in Albanian, Urdu, Turkish, French and Gujerati, with the help of their mothers or their friends. Teachers, parents and researchers will find the book invaluable. It explores the nature and benefits of biliteracy and offers ideas and strategies for teaching young children languages, whether by developing their bilingualism or teaching them new ones.

On holiday with her streetwise son in Lagos, a British-Nigerian mother is in turmoil.

All parents agonise about educational choices for their children. For Black and Diaspora parents, race and culture make the decision-making even more complex.’ – Diane Abbott MP ‘Honest, simple and enthralling... What makes this play incredible, is not only the humour that runs throughout, but the real life portrayal of relationships... absolutely brilliant’ – Public Reviews ‘It’s firecracker theatre that, in places, is as touching as is it hilarious.’ –The Stage

In recent years, the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis has undergone tremendous changes due to methotrexate and biologics in large part. Until a decade ago, avoiding joint destruction in rheumatoid arthritis was not realistic for rheumatologist. However, prevention of joint deterioration is now possible, and the quality of life of patients with rheumatoid arthritis in long-term has been able to improve by advances in treatment. However, there are still many problems to be overcome before achieving the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. All of review articles presented on this book are explaining treatment, basic research, and patient care of rheumatoid arthritis with innovative perspective and ideas. I hope that the ideas that have been described in these articles help the reader to resolve the outstanding issues in rheumatoid arthritis.
