“By applying a multidisciplinary framework, this volume captures the true complexity of reading comprehension. When read separately, the chapters serve as a masterful review of the current research concerning comprehension and the many factors that influence it. Read as a whole, the volume points to future intersections for multidisciplinary studies that will do much to advance the field.”

—Katherine R. Hilden, PhD, School of Teacher Education and Leadership, Radford University

“This volume represents a significant accomplishment in advancing our understanding of reading comprehension. By integrating examinations of the origins of comprehension from multiple disciplines, Wagner et al. enhance each discipline's contribution. Each chapter helps to bring the topic into sharper focus, and the editors illustrate numerous ways that behavioral and biological perspectives can interface effectively. This book is an exceptional text for graduate courses in reading and will serve as an outstanding resource for researchers.”
