Review of previous edition:
'...a great work of demythologisation, which puts the concept of standard English in its proper historical perspective...a book which every teacher of English in the country should read.' Professor Roy Harris, University of Oxford
Review of this edition:
'Crowley demythologizes 'standard English' as a marker of uniformity, neutrality, and the one language of truth...One strength of these core chapters is that Crowley positions opposing views/theories in interesting ways in an attempt to offer some balance in prespective...By the end...[he] has successfully woven an historical tapestry of parallel, yet interesting discourses to reveal that every time the question of language surfaces...it means that a series of problems are coming to the fore.' - Marina Engelking, Language Awareness
