 Abstract:
 
 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.
