The publication of this handbook would have no doubt struck an observer from the early 20th century as highly improbable. That ideas formulated by a Russian psychologist in the 1920s and 30s would continue to be discussed into the 21st century and would influence so many fields, including scholarship concerned with second language (L2) development, would have almost certainly been met with incredulity. Nonetheless, the 35 chapters in this handbook are a testament to the unique vision and enduring influence of L. S. Vygotsky.
