MEDIA REVIEWS

"Mapping Applied Linguistics is far and away the best introduction to applied linguistics we have to date. But it is more than that. It is a major contribution to the very definition and foundations of the field. It will be viewed as a seminal book."
-- James Paul Gee, Arizona State University

"The authors of Mapping Applied Linguistics have included broad sociocultural and critical perspectives on the key issues and methodologies in applied linguistics. It is written in language that is accessible to the general reader as well as advanced undergraduate or postgraduate students. It will provide a much-needed comprehensive introduction to the field."

-- Angel Lin, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

"This book covers an impressively wide range of topics that are of interest to students of applied linguistics. It offers a detailed discussion of the fundamentals of a number of sub-disciplines with the help of a variety of fascinating examples and case studies, all presented in a lively and accessible style."

-- Dr Geri Popova, Lecturer in Linguistics, Goldsmiths University of London, UK

"Mapping Applied Linguistics is a comprehensive introduction and guide to many of the areas which comprise Applied Linguistics. The authors draw upon their own and collective considerable experience to provide a fresh and innovative approach to developing understanding of the concepts included in the book, in an accessible and interesting way. Each chapter contains thought provoking and challenging activities to further stimulate readers and learners.

-- Dr Urszula Clark, Aston University, UK

"This is a very well presented textbook for MA level courses in applied linguistics, language education and modern languages. There is a fair-minded authorial voice running through the fourteen chapters. Readers will find an intellectually rigorous treatment of complex topics and themes such as `Ten ways we're led astray in language and applied linguistics'. Students and faculty alike would find the discussion well informed and tuned to contemporary sensibilities. This textbook is a lot more than a carefully assembled survey of major developments and issues in applied linguistics; it helps us see the relevance of the study of language in our everyday experience."

-- Professor Constant Leung, Department of Education and Professional Studies, King's College London, UK

"Readers from a variety of disciplinary orientations will appreciate the logical layout of this field guide to applied linguistics... [They] depart with a clear understanding of how to respond to the monolithic view of languages and misleading beliefs of linguistic practice."

-- Studies in Second Language Acquisition
