Gallaudet University Press is now the publisher of the venerable journal the American Annals of the Deaf. The official journal of the Conference of Educational Administrators of Schools and Programs for the Deaf (CEASD) and the Convention of American Instructors of the Deaf (CAID), the American Annals of the Deaf has published seminal articles since it was founded in 1847. For more than 150 years this distinctive professional periodical has presented faithfully the various developments and debates on deaf education.

The four literary issues of the Annals cover a full spectrum of topics, including cochlear implants in prelingually deaf children; the use of signs and manual communication; psycholinguistics and deafness; and instructional technology for educating deaf and hard of hearing students. The reference issue features comprehensive listings of educational programs for deaf and hard of hearing students, university and college programs in deaf education, and more. You can subscribe to the Annals here.

Deaf Children in China is a considerable academic achievement and interesting, compelling reading, praises the British journal Deafness and Education International in its March 2002 issue. The accolades continue: This review cannot do justice to the richness of information and ideas in this book and you do not need to be going to China to learn from it. The book stimulates reflection about our own approaches to families with young deaf children. And there is particular relevance to current cultural issues associated with supporting our ethnic minority families. An excellent book. Read the journal's review in its entirety and chapter six of Deaf Children in China, Letters to Zhou Hong, and place your order for Alison Callaway's Deaf Children in China today.
