The Sociopolitics of English Language Teaching is an insightful and balanced collection... it offers a diversity of scope that is theoretically engaging yet accessible to novice teachers and langauge professionals unversed in these issues... The authors and editors are to be commended for the challenging perspectives and possibilities offered teachers. Brian Morgan, Canadian Modern Language Review
