MEDIA REVIEWS

'This book is a very welcome addition to the literature available to students on BA and MA programmes. I believe that many of the chapters will engender some very stimulating and thought provoking discussions...a very timely, much needed contribution to our growing understanding of the global presence of English in all its many guises across Asia and the wider world'

- Martin Dewey, King's College London, UK

'...a valuable and timely addition to the ever-growing field of WE. It not only contributes to the expanding body of research on Asian Englishes, but it also sheds invaluable light on the current and future debates surrounding the use of English(es) today...Taken as a whole, the volume is a very solid, well-argued, and highly structured text, and all of the chapters in the volume are written in a clear, accessible, and engaging style, despite the complexity of the issues involved. I would highly recommend this book to researchers who are interested in WE, English studies, sociolinguistics, and intercultural communication, especially those who are engaged in sociolinguistic research in Asian contexts. It would also serve as a very good introduction to readers who may be new to the fascinating field of WE.' - Language and Intercultural Communication

'[This volume] offers a high quality, largely cohesive and comprehensive look at English in Asia.' - World Englishes

'One of the book's strengths is its accessibility; the arguments, while seemingly complex and multifaceted, are easy to understand...this book does exactly what it sets out to do in the Introduction from Murata and Jenkins. It provides readers with a good understanding of the spread of English throughout Asia.' - James Essex, Komazawa University, JALT Journal
