This edited volume provides the reader with deep insights into a whole range of issues connected with the EMI phenomenon in Japanese higher education. Whether the reader is involved in Japanese education or not, the book acts as an excellent model of how to compose a case study of one particular country, how language policies are arrived at, how EMI is conceptualised and how to evaluate the reactions of the various stakeholders.* Ernesto Macaro, University of Oxford, UK *
In the rapidly expanding field of English Medium Instruction, this important volume covers a range of challenges and good practice relevant to contexts where English is not the dominant language. It provides a touchstone for policy and implementation in the use of EMI as a support for internationalization at home. * Elspeth Jones, Emerita Professor, Leeds Beckett University, UK *
