About the Author:

A.P.R. Howatt has retired as Senior Lecturer in Applied Linguistics at the University of Edinburgh, of which he is a graduate. Professor Henry Widdowson is an internationally acclaimed authority in applied linguistics and language teaching. His many books, articles, and lectures have been
seminal in establishing both the field of applied linguistics and its mode of enquiry.

Review:

'..It's a stunning read...If I were pressed to draw up a list of ten ELT titles with which to spend a year on a desert island this one would easily some into my top three.' - Wayne Trotman, EL Gazette, January 2005

'The volume remains the single most authoritative and comprehensive account of the history of English language teaching, and will surely continue to serve as a prime source for the profession for many years to come...This is a work of considerable research and scholarship characterized by
rigour and balance, comprehensive yet uncluttered.' - Rani Rubdy, Director of Graduate Programmes, Institute for English Language Education, Assumption University, Bangkok.

'I found this book extremely readable...This book is fascinating, packed with human interest stories about the people who shaped our profession, while at the same time giving a clear explanation of the theoretical perspectives that inspired them.' - IATEFL Issues, February/March 2005

'To sum up, this fine book should be required reading for all members of the profession, if by profession, we include all the personages and movements that have made us what we are.' - BAAL Reviews, 2005

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The series attracts single or co-authored volumes from authors researching at the cutting edge of this dynamic field of interdisciplinary enquiry. The titles range from books that make such developments accessible to the non-specialist reader to those which explore in depth their relevance for the way language is to be conceived as a subject, and how courses and classroom activities are to be designed. As such, these books not only extend the field of applied linguistics itself and lend an additional significance to its enquiries, but also provide an indispensable professional foundation for language pedagogy and its practice. The scope of the series includes: * second language acquisition * bilingualism and multi/plurilingualism * language pedagogy and teacher education * testing and assessment * language planning and policy * language internationalization * technology-mediated communication * discourse-, conversation-, and contrastive-analysis * pragmatics * stylistics * lexicography * translation.
