 About the Book 

George Bradford Patterson and I met during his visit to Recife, Brazil in July, 1989. In April, 1990, that is when he first told me by letter from Korea about his long-cherished educational project: writing a dictionary on language teaching techniques. Now, it is most gratifying to see his goal come true: This book is a relevant contribution to the literature on Language Teaching Education. Farsightedly, the author has included entries which focus on recent applications of key concepts from Peace Linguistics and Nonkilling Linguistics. May this treasury of pedagogical suggestions also inspire researchers in language education to locally and globally document and share information on creativity in language teaching methodology from an East-West perspective- all for the sake of dignifying the work of co-builders in second language education: teachers and learners.Francisco Gomes de Matos, an applied peace linguist and language educator, Professor Emeritus of Linguistics, Federal University of Pernambuco, Co-founder and President of the Board, ABA Global Education, Recife, Brazil
