Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users."
Case Study Research in Applied Linguistics is an introductory book on research in the field of second language acquisition. Many of the current research methodology textbooks cover case study research, but none handle the topic or process in depth. The book is intended for undergraduate and graduate students and other researchers wanting to learn more about case study methods and their application to research on language learning.
