Abstract

In this opening chapter we want to do more than provide an overview of the book and summaries of its chapters. We want to set the scene and provide a rationale for a book celebrating the life’s work and contribution of a valued academic. Through this book we want to be able, with a group of a dozen or so other colleagues, to say something about the field of mathematics education through a focus on the contribution of one key player – Stephen Lerman.
