  1. September Book of the Month: Metaphysics An Introduction

    "Self-destructive behaviors of all kinds can confuse even the therapists involved with such clients, bringing out the desire to force them to stop. Fortunately, Lisa Ferentz’s original book helped reverse that trend, and this well-written and well-researched second edition goes even further in providing a non-pathologized and empowering understanding approach to these behaviors." —Richard Schwartz, PhD, faculty member at Harvard Medical School.

    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?"

    - Alan Firth, Newcastle University, UK
