'The outcomes of some TESOL activities are unpredictable, the ramifications going well beyond the classroom, ideally impelled by a wish to contribute to a more just world. Edge's book provides a stimulating set of ways of addressing the existential TESOL problem of whether the promotion of English abroad is merely part of the 'age of empire', however pedagogically inspired the classroom activities may be. It does not provide easy answers, but it outlines many useful pointers and strategies, and is excellent in presenting why these difficult professional concerns urgently need to be made central to TESOL's 'mission'' - Robert Phillipson, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
