    In her provocative new book, Stacie Goffin presents a leadership manifesto to the early education field: It should step forward as an agent for change by assuming responsibility for the competent practice of its practitioners and for facilitating positive results for children and their learning. As a field of practice, early childhood education should formally organize as a profession to realize consistency in practice across sites and program types. Goffin challenges the field to develop fieldwide leadership and diminish its reliance on public policy for defining its purpose and structure. Offering a fresh viewpoint on national efforts to improve program quality and children's learning and development, the book concludes with ''Next Steps Commentaries'' written by education luminaires Rolf Grafwallner, Jacqueline Jones, and Pamela J. Winton, outlining concrete action steps to jump-start the essential discussion about moving forward. Softbound, 120 pgs.
