    "[Genetically Modified Organisms: A Scientific-Political Dialogue on a Meaningless Meme] is an excellent book presenting a very strong case for abandoning the acronym GMO. It will be extremely helpful to scholars and educators in developing countries who need to persuade their populace and politicians to adopt modern methods to reap the benefits of more nutritious foods and greatly improved yields."

Classroom-based Assessment in L2 Contexts

This edited volume addresses issues that promote the notion of Classroom-based Language Assessment (CBLA) for the academic community and beyond. The book explores recent thinking and research on CBLA within the fields of language testing, assessment and general education based on theoretical and research papers presented at the recent CBLA SIG – EALTA Symposia held in Cyprus and the pre-conference EALTA workshops in various countries around Europe. The volume contains 17 chapters which involve both high-stakes tests and classroom-based assessments conducted by academics, professionals and researchers in the field. It brings together high-quality submissions that cover a gap in a research area that has long been in need of theoretical and empirical attention. Overall, this edited collection, with its international scope, offers a ground-breaking resource, bringing together in balanced relationship the fields of education and second language testing and assessment.
