Review:

"Overall, The Handbook of Language and Globalizationsucceeds in providing the reader with insightful analysis at theintersection of language and globalization. With its broad scopeand inclusion of useful research topics, the volume can beconsidered as an open gate for a wider field of study and researchin sociolinguistics. It also provides a stimulating and complexpicture of the
state of theory and practice in the area of language andglobalization." (Linguist, 18 October 2012)

"An enlightening and engaging collection by eminentinternational scholars. A major resource for the study oftheoretical and pragmatic approaches to Global English, includingconcerns about 'marginalization' and'murder' of languages."

--Braj B.Kachru, Professor Emeritus, University ofIllinois

"This Handbook provides a fascinating exposition of thecomplex, multidimensional nature of globalization as it pertains tothe world's languages. Coupland has marshalled authors at theforefront of their fields who offer a diversity of approaches anddo not flinch from disputes and challenging questions. I suspectthat this book will transform the discourse on globalization withinlinguistics and will impel a reconsideration of whether linguisticdiversity is inevitably impacted by global processes."
--Margaret Florey, Resource Network for LinguisticDiversity

From the Back Cover:

Globalization is a complex combination of economic, social, andcultural shifts largely carried out through language: from textsand communicative exchanges to the orders of meaning that constructcontemporary social lives. The Handbook of Language andGlobalization meets the challenges that globalization poses tosociolinguistic theory by investigating key issues relating tolanguage use and development.

Comprising 30 chapters written by leading internationalscholars, the volume brings together new research in the field andmaps out new areas for future research. Contributors cover suchtopics as tourism, language teaching, computer-mediated socialnetworking, terrorism, and religion, among many others. The volumealso illustrates critical approaches to discourse, socialsemiotics, linguistic anthropology, and cultural studies. Theresult is a vibrant interdisciplinary mix of articles thatrepresents some of the most compelling contemporary sociolinguisticresearch. Venturing beyond the constraints of the typical speechcommunity, the handbook takes steps towards re-theorizing languagein the world today.
