Overview

"It must be said that [The Oxford Handbook of Applied Linguistics] is an impressive publishing achievement. The task of analyzing the field, deckling on disciplines to be covered, finding willing contributors of sufficient status from all over the world, and then combining the articles from these contributors into an edited whole must have been a massive one, and it has been largely successful. Oxford University Press, Robert Kaplan, and the editorial board are to be congratulated on their initiative and the result it has produced."---Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language (Vol.6 No. 3. December 2002)" "This is an impressive and ambitious enterprise....Although this book can be used for reference, its real strength lies in its scope and reflective quality. This book has many roles: as a map of the territory, to inform on where things are and their intellectual topography: a guide: 39 individual mines: but above all as an extended, reflective, collective synthesis-essay on what we are and what we do. Professionals will be able to determine what are the current directions in other parts of AL. Students, teachers, and researchers in AL and beyond will be able to use it for survey courses, and as a springboard to deeper investigation of specific areas and topics."---AILA News" "[A] monumental editorial enterprise....It is to be commended and used widely and wisely."---ESL Magazine" This second edition of the Oxford Handbook of Applied Linguistics includes five new chapters, and the remaining chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated to give a clear picture of the current state of applied linguistics.
