Abstract:

"The Politics of English: Conflict, Competition, Co-existence" explores
policies and practices that affect the use and position of English.

The book discusses the ways in which people's language choices relate to
the history, politics, and economies of their local context. Throughout, the
focus is on the international nature of English and its use alongside other
languages in a range of contexts.

The book covers topical issues including the role that English plays in
shaping migratory patterns, the English teaching and publishing industries,
and the dominance of English in the global media. Key theoretical concepts
are introduced in an accessible manner, and readers are given an in-depth
understanding of the roles that English and other languages play as people
mediate relationships of competition, conflict and co-existence in today's
globalized world.

Drawing on the latest research and The Open University's wide experience of
writing accessible and innovative texts, this book:

-explains basic concepts and assumes no previous study of English or
linguistics

-contains a range of source material and commissioned readings to
supplement chapters

-includes contributions from leading experts in their fields including Mona
Baker, Jan Blommaert, Deborah Cameron, Guy Cook, John Gray, Frank
Monaghan and Naz Rassool

-has an international scope, encompassing examples and case studies from
the UK, the USA, Europe, Asia, and Africa

-is illustrated in full color and includes a comprehensive index.

"The Politics of English: Conflict, Competition, Co-existence" is essential
reading for students of English language studies, and cultural and
international studies.
