Review:

"Though this volume is intended for graduate students and teachers of TESOL and applied linguistics, the accessible style of the handbook appeals to a wider audience. Overall, this book is an invaluable resource for teaching and research." (Discourse Studies, 18 November 2014)

"The Handbook of English for Specific Purposes would make an excellent addition to school or university collections. It could also be an excellent textbook for a dedicated course on ESP in a teacher education program . . . The Handbook provides a broad overview of the field, with sections specifically oriented to teachers, administrators and/or teacher educators ('ESP and language skills', 'ESP and pedagogy'), as well as to researchers ('Areas of ESP research', Research perspectives and methodologies in ESP research')." (English Australia Journal, 1 March 2013)

From the Back Cover:

As an approach to language teaching, English for Specific Purposes (ESP) is increasingly relevant in today's world. The Handbook of English for Specific Purposes features a collection of newly commissioned essays that survey the key areas of research in ESP. Contributions by leading scholars from across the globe address all major aspects of English for specific purposes study, from its origins and evolution to directions for future research.

Initial chapters focus on the history of ESP and current areas of ESP research, including speaking, reading, writing, business and legal English, nursing, technology, and many more. Subsequent chapters offer perspectives on ESP research, covering such topics as genre, intercultural rhetoric, multimodality, English as a lingua franca and ethnography. With its comprehensive scope and in-depth coverage, this handbook is an essential resource for students, teachers, and researchers engaged in ESP research.
