MEDIA REVIEWS

"For sociolinguists, this volume provides an excellent overview of the dynamic and complex interactions between language education and nation building projects in a vastly multilingual part of the world. ... The insights and rich discussion in this volume are further evidence of the lively intellectual contribution that a community of like-minded professionals across this vast space is able to produce." (Joseph Lo Bianco, Journal of Sociolinguistics, Vol. 19, 2015)
