Vygotksy's legacy is an exciting but often confusing fusion of ideas. An Introduction to Vygotksy provides students with an accessible overview of his work combining reprints of key journal and text articles with editorial commentary and suggested further reading. Harry Daniels explores Vygotsky's work against a backdrop of political turmoil in the developing USSR. Major elements include use of the "culture" concept in social development theory and implications for teaching, learning and assessment. Academics and students at all levels will find this an essential key source of information.
