From the Publisher
'A much-awaited [book] from which not only students both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels of any disciplines but also academic and administrative staff in HE as well as teachers at all levels, policymakers, international publishers, and examination boards will all greatly benefit.
It is the book that can completely change our way of thinking towards the ownership of English.' - Kumiko Murata, ELT Journal
‘This book puts the spotlight on the nature, role and consequences of 'English' in the 'international' university. It provides a welcome focus on debates about what kinds of language and literacy policies should be informing contemporary higher education. An important book for researchers and practitioners alike.’ - Theresa Lillis, The Open University, UK
‘On reading this book, people will wonder why native English remains so entrenched as the sole standard. The author’s call for a complete change of mind-set is compelling…this is a timely and important book.’ - Andy Kirkpatrick, Griffith University, Australia
‘Jennifer Jenkins offers us a comprehensive and incisive analysis of the complexities of higher education in the global world, with a welcome focus on the burning issues of linguistic and intercultural complexity involved.’ - Anna Mauranen, University of Helsinki, Finland
