Abstract:

This book offers a critical examination of aspects of the politics the
role of English in Africa and its Diaspora. It looks at its changed
location in the post-Cold War era and the challenges it poses to the
enduring quest for intellectual liberation, pan-Africanism and
Afrocentricity. The study also explores the spaces and possibilities
for "appropriating" the language towards a counter-hegemonic
African-centred agenda under the present global order.

Lingfield(s):	Sociolinguistics 

Written In:	English (Language Code: ENG)
