For Manu

With special thanks to my mother, Emily A. McDermott, for her invaluable editing, support and guidance; my wife, Boloroo, for her love and endurance; my sons, Temuulen and Nagarjunai, for being the greatest blessings of my life; my father, Rick, for always making a joke of everything, even when it wasn’t appropriate; my siblings, Alexandra, Eric, Michaela and Samuel, for being my best friends and closest companions; my brothers-in-law, Freddy and Brad, for being great guys to my sisters and for always indulging me when I insisted on having philosophical and political conversations at the dinner table; my nephews, Claus and Kellen, for being adorable; Donaldo Macedo, my professor at UMass Boston, for introducing me to the field of sociolinguistics and to the work of Paolo Freire; Pepi Leistyna, also my professor at UMass Boston, for teaching me about cross-cultural perspectives and inspiring me to write this book; and many of my friends, teachers, professors, students and extended family members, for contributing in their own ways to the writing of this book.
