From the Publisher‘This ambitious book is timely, well conceived, and highlyaccessible to a wide audience. The author brings together a rangeof topics related to language that have not been addressedcoherently in any other volume.’ Jim Cummins,University of Toronto
‘This is a book whose time has come. Its focus onmultilingualism in English-dominant countries uncovers a wealth oflanguage activity that has largely gone unnoticed, and unremarked,until now, providing a much-needed counterbalance to the myopicpreoccupation in the academic and wider popular literature withEnglish. Viv Edwards’s book is also simply a pleasure to read– highly lucid, accessible and interesting, there is muchhere to enjoy, and learn from, for both the academic and thegeneral reader.’ Stephen May, Universityof Waikato
