Oxford Handbooks offer authoritative and up-to-date reviews of original research in a particular subject area. Specially commissioned chapters from leading figures in the discipline give critical examinations of the progress and direction of debates, as well as a foundation for future research. Oxford Handbooks provide scholars and graduate students with compelling new perspectives upon a wide range of subjects in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. The adage Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it is a powerful one for parents, teachers, and other professionals involved with or interested in deaf individuals or the Deaf community. Myths grown from ignorance have long dogged the field, and faulty assumptions and overgeneralizations have persisted despite contrary evidence. A study of the history of deaf education reveals patterns that have affected educational policy and legislation for deaf people around the world; these patterns are related to several themes critical to the chapters of this volume. One such theme is the importance of parental involvement in raising and educating deaf children. Another relates to how Deaf people have taken an increasingly greater role in influencing their own futures and places in society. In published histories, we see the longstanding conflicts through the centuries that pertain to sign language and spoken communication philosophies, as well as the contributions of the individuals who advocated alternative strategies for teaching deaf children. More recently, investigators have recognized the need for a diverse approach to language and language learning. Advances in technology, cognitive science, linguistics, and the social sciences have alternately led and followed changes in theory and practice, resulting in a changing landscape for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals and those connected to them. This second volume of the The Oxford Handbook of Deaf Studies, Language, and Education (2003) picks up where that first landmark volume left off, describing those advances and offering readers the opportunity to understand the current status of research in the field while recognizing the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. In Volume 2, an international group of contributing experts provide state-of-the-art summaries intended for students, practitioners, and researchers. Not only does it describe where we are, it helps to chart courses for the future.

This is the revised story of my past real life business, Audio Sound Centre and the strategies I employed which helped my business win the 1997 Telstra Award for the Best Small Business in NSW, category under 10 employees, referred to by many as the Olympic Games Gold Medal of Australian Small Business. Armed with an understanding of my small business secrets, I hope you will go to work on your own small business and improve its current position. Perhaps with enough hard work, you too could win a similar coveted business award in your area. I encourage you to seek out your local awards and enter them. I have written this book from my position as a small business owner. It is written from my real life experiences and is very much an account of “the way I do things.” I have covered both the highs and lows that I experienced in taking my business from its conception through to its sale so hopefully, you will learn something of my struggle and consequently you will profit from my journey. Inside this book, I have detailed my business secrets for you. I would like you to start using them in your own small business—today. Not next week, but today.
