cite. Constraints of budget and space mean that it has not been possible to include all the papers I would like. I have deliberately excluded papers on bilingual education, language planning, language maintenance and language shift, and language attitude. A good reader on policy and practice in bilingual education already exists (Garcia and Baker, 1995), and the sociolinguistics readers edited by Coupland and Jaworski (1997) and Trudgill and Cheshire (1997) both contain key articles on language planning, language maintenance and language shift, and language attitude. Consequently, most of the papers in the present Reader focus on the micro aspects of bilingualism, especially on the language behaviour of bilingual individuals. All the chosen papers are journal articles or book chapters. Extracts from single authored monographs are not included, as a decontextualised digest is deemed inappropriate for student use. Some of the more recent papers published in easily accessible journals and books are also excluded. They, and the important single authored monographs, are listed under Further Reading at the end of each section of the Reader.

Recently, handbooks have become a popular commodity. They are usually compilations of specially commissioned survey-type articles. There is no doubt that they provide a handy resource for students and lecturers. However, handbooks do not address the concerns I have specified above. In fact, handbook users may be more at risk of believing that they knew the subject without actually consulting, let alone understanding, the original formulation of ideas. I therefore declined the suggestion that was put to me to compile a handbook of bilingualism and chose instead to edit a reader of classic articles. Some of the recent state-of-the-art collections are listed in the Resource List section.

In theory, a reader represents a diversity of voices rather than a single authorial one as is normally the case with a textbook. But I am fully aware of the fact that I, as the editor, imprint my views via selection of the papers and the leading comments in the introductory remarks and even in the suggested study activities and Further Reading. I must confess, however, that I do not agree with all the views expressed in the papers included in this Reader. Nevertheless I believe that all these papers are essential reading for anyone interested in bilingualism and hope the Reader as a whole gives a good representation of the various dimensions of bilingualism research.
