Swets & Zeitlinger Publishers (publishers of the journal CALL) announce the
publication of their latest book, WORLDCALL: GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES ON
COMPUTER-ASSISTED LANGUAGE LEARNING, edited by Robert Debski and Mike Levy
(ISB 90-265-1555-3).

This volume has grown out of the unique atmosphere of the 1998 inaugural
WorldCALL Conference in Melbourne, Australia, and provides a significant
contribution to the literature in that it presents an expression of what is
new and important in CALL from points around the world. It illustrates the
creative and diverse ways in which language teachers and researchers are
responding to the needs of their students and takes proper account of the
priorities that are set by the particular educational context, language and
culture. Yet amid this diversity, this collection provides evidence that a
rational and reasoned response is indeed possible, as we face the challenges
presented by new technologies and the new language learning environments
that follow.
