This review of the English textbook The Cambridge Companion to Vygotsky (2007) gives a detailed description of the problems covered in the book and of its inner structure. The authors not only focus on the content of the book, but also provide critical analysis of the texts, with references to relevant publications on the subject. The book consists of three parts: 'Vygotsky in Context', 'Readings of Vygotsky' and 'Applications of Vygotsky's Work'. The review focuses mainly on the texts illuminating recent achievements in Western practical psychology made within the cultural-historical paradigm.
