"Con este volumen, el joven campo del español como lengua heredada alcanza su madurez y consolida su importancia dentro de la lingüística aplicada. Estos 36 estudios, firmados por un extraordinario elenco de expertos, ofrecen análisis desde una multiplicidad de contextos y ángulos, algunos muy novedosos. Potowski ha logrado ensamblar una magnífica obra coral."
Francisco Moreno Fernández, Universidad de Alcalá and Instituto Cervantes at Harvard University
"The breadth of scholarship collected here, including leading researchers in Latino studies, various disciplines of linguistics, and education, is the result of Potowski's vision for these fields to inform each other with the goal of improving circumstances for diasporic Spanish-speaking populations around the world. These analyses push our understandings of critical topics, and many chapters inspire advocacy for marginalized populations. An essential volume."
