Review:

Overall, The Handbook of Language and Globalization succeeds in providing the reader with insightful analysis at the intersection of language and globalization. With its broad scope and inclusion of useful research topics, the volume can be considered as an open gate for a wider field of study and research in sociolinguistics. It also provides a stimulating and complex picture of the
state of theory and practice in the area of language and globalization.   (Linguist, 18 October 2012)

An enlightening and engaging collection by eminent international scholars. A major resource for the study of theoretical and pragmatic approaches to Global English, including concerns about marginalization and murder of languages.

Braj B.Kachru, Professor Emeritus, University of Illinois

This Handbook provides a fascinating exposition of the complex, multidimensional nature of globalization as it pertains to the world′s languages. Coupland has marshalled authors at the forefront of their fields who offer a diversity of approaches and do not flinch from disputes and challenging questions. I suspect that this book will transform the discourse on globalization within linguistics and will impel a reconsideration of whether linguistic diversity is inevitably impacted by global processes.
