About the Author:

Robert Phillipson is a Professor of English in the Copenhagen Business School. His main research interests include the role of English worldwide, language policy and multilingualism in the European Union. Robert has written and edited books on language policy, language learning, and language
rights.

Review:

'What is original about his treatise is that it provides the first systematic examination of the enormous significance of language to most neo-colonial enterprises. It should be recommended to anyone convinced of the 'superiority' of the English language or of the necessity of its universal
dissemination.' - New Internationalist (21/09/1995)

'This is an important, groundbreaking study of the political background and impact of the spread of English. Congratulations are due to Phillipson for having taken on this task ... Phillipson has tackled a topic of major proportion and his work shows his wide reading of a large number of
interesting sources ... He has drawn attention dramatically to important issues that have so far been mainly ignored and that cry out for continued investigation, and his book should be required reading for all concerned with the development and implementation of language policy.' - Journal of
Pragmatics (12/02/1996)
