'This book provides an excellent, informative introduction to the vexed question of English as a world language. It assesses the modern spread of the English language factually in an unbiased fashion and presents students with a wealth of exciting practical work that will enable them to develop a balanced perspective of the 'global' language English.' - Richard Watts, University of Berne 'The refusal to collude with cosy myths is a great strength of this book. The texts and exercises are very carefully chosen to be interesting and intellectually challenging and should work well with students from different levels and ranges of experience.'- Mark Sebba, University of Lancaster, UK
