    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
