Similar to Phillipson's linguistic imperialism this book critically deals with the world-wide spread of English. Altough Pennycook overplays the dangers of English a bit he is far less idelogical than Phillipson. Contrary to Phillipson he also offer an interestign solution which is that teachers of English have to deal critically with this phenomenon. He refers to this as critical pedagogy. This book is highly recommended for any discussion about international English!
