Title: Multilingualism in the English-speaking World
Subtitle: Pedigree of Nations
Written By: Viv Edwards
URL: http://blackwellpublishing.com/book.asp?ref=0631236120&site=1
Description:

Multilingualism in the English-Speaking World: Pedigree of Nations explores
the consequences of English as a global language and multilingualism as a
social phenomenon. Written accessibly, it explores the extent of diversity
in ‘inner circle’ English speaking countries (the UK, the USA, Canada,
South Africa, Australia and New Zealand) and examines language in the home,
school, and the wider community.

- Considers the perspectives of English as a global language as well as
multilingualism as a social phenomenon.

- Written in an accessible style that draws on contemporary real life examples.

- Examines the everyday realities of people living in 'inner circle'
English-speaking countries, such as the UK, USA, Canada, South Africa,
Australia and New Zealand.

- Discusses the theoretical issues that underpin current debates, drawing
on research literature on societal multilingualism, language maintenance
and shift, language policy, language and power, and language and identity.
