    Jane Jackson's The Routledge Handbook of Language and Intercultural Communication is Essential!

    "The essays coalesce in a tour de force that embraces the multi-layered interactions involving language choice defined by psychological, economical, political, religious, and ethical factors. The volume is capably indexed and extended by a wealth of recommended readings for each essay. It fills gaps between national demarcations and serves as a bridge for educators, policymakers, and others interested in and/or working in the field. Summing Up: Essential." - CHOICE, March 2014

  2. David Block

    Renowned Author David Block on Political Economy

    Political economy has become a key reference discipline for many Applied Linguists in recent years. And the ways in which we define and employ it in applied linguistics research are diverse as we try to make sense of the current economic crisis. David Block, whose various works explore political economic issues, gave Routledge an exclusive interview. Professor Block touches upon the definition of political economy, the necessity of continuously evaluating this topic in applied linguistics and the social sciences in general, and how his upcoming series Language, Society and Political Economy can deepen our understanding of the subject, especially as it relates to language in society issues.
