The series, published by Cambridge University Press, showcases a dynamic and high-quality set of original, concise scholarly works.

Speaking about his new series, Dr. Benati, said:
‘‘The new Cambridge series is a great opportunity to examine and present specific elements in second language acquisition in a clear reader-friendly manner, to identify current and new area of enquiries and to spell out the implications of the research for language learning and teaching.’’
