    Praise for this book

    "Canagarajah has done it again. Just when you may have thought it was safe to retreat to the confines of disciplinary discipline and conceptual conformity, he produces a work that necessitates a serious re-examination and re-appraisal of what language study is, or should be, about. This masterful book will be essential reading for anyone seeking answers to the question: How do we do linguistics in a globalized world?"

  6. New Title - Israeli Peacemaking since 1967

    "This book should be read by politicians, diplomats, and the public as providing invaluable lessons in peace making and conflict resolution in the Middle East." - Daniel Kurtzer, Princeton University and Former U.S. Ambassador to Israel and Egypt 

    Examining the Israeli-Arab conflict as an "intractable conflict," Israeli Peacemaking since 1967 seeks to determine just which factors, or combination of factors, impacted on Israel's position in past peace-making efforts, possibly accounting for breakthroughs or failures to reach agreement.
