What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

'Ambitious and comprehensive in scope, this book presents the most up-to-date coverage of the tensions, dilemmas and social injustice resulting from the convergence of nationalism, neo-internal colonialism and neoliberal globalization in the diverse geopolitical and linguistic landscapes of Southeast Asia. The authors, however, also remind us of the creative agency of local social actors and how they craft out spaces for developing local language-based education programmes in the region.' Professor Angel Lin, Faculty of Education, The University of Hong Kong
