qDr. Mullen has put together a book that reminds us of the synergy and possibilities found in collaborations dedicated to shared transformational learning. Leadership preparation centered within considerations of social justice and equity mandates such a book as this one. The collective voices in this volume are a thoughtful addition to the libraries of program developers, school leaders, and those committed to preparing them.q - Autumn Tooms, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership, Kent State University qThe Handbook of Leadership and Professional Learning Communities expands current literature about professional learning communities. Rather than perspectives by a single author or small team of authors, this edited collection features writings by both university scholars and instructors and K-12 practitioners. Because the contributors have different foci, the resources cited in the various chapters provide readers with a broad literature base, making the book suitable for use in educator preparation programs and practitioner studies. This edited volume is an important - and unique - contribution to the field.q - Tricia Browne-Ferrigno, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership, University of Kentucky.Retrieved on August 13, 2008, from http://www.ge.com/founda- tion/minorities.pdf .
