The role of nucleation kinetics in affecting glass formation behavior is discussed. Also considered are measurements of homogeneous crystal nucleation in a variety of liquids. For a number of oxide glass-forming liquids, available data indicate pre-exponential factors which are larger than those predicted from classical nucleation theory by factors of 10**1**7 to 10**4**9. Possible sources of this discrepancy are discussed.
