About the Author:

Vic Webb is at University of Pretoria. Kembo-Sure is at Moi University, Kenya.

Review:

`Editors Vic Webb and Kembo-Sure offer what looks like a new approach from inside Africa, involving a collaboration of southern and east African authors. This.. is a welcome and timely reminder that linguists cannot stand idly by when their profession can provide insights into political and
social issues and can contribute to policy solutions.'
Robin Thelwall and Helma Pasch, THES.
