If the reader still needs convincing that Spain is now a world leader in research into academic English, this book should clinch it. Professor Carmen Perez-Llantada here demonstrates how her major investigative projects offer both theoretical insight and practical value to all those having to cope with a globalizing research world. -- John M. Swales, Professor Emeritus of Linguistics, University of Michigan, USA
Llantada's volume introduces the reader to a fuller understanding of the interrelatedness between science, language(s), culture(s) and the processes of globalization. It does so by combining both text-linguistic and ethnographic analyses. Taking the Spanish scholarly community as an instance, she explores the situational context of scientific discourse production and yields evidence of discursive similarities but also hybridization processes in academic norms across different cultural contexts.' -- Maurizio Gotti, Professor of Linguistics and Director of the Language Centre, University of Bergamo, Italy
