Featured Review: Language Education and the Challenges of Globalisation: Sociolinguistic Issues

At Cambridge Scholars, we are very proud that many of our authors and their publications are critically acclaimed by eminent scholars in their respective fields. We put our authors at the centre of everything we do, and we would like to take this opportunity to highlight a particularly noteworthy review.

This month, we are delighted to showcase Professor Tim Connell’s review of Martin Solly and Edith Esch’s edited volume Language Education and the Challenges of Globalisation: Sociolinguistic Issues. Tim is not only Professor Emeritus at City University but also Vice-President of the Chartered Institute of Linguists, Honorary Life Fellow of Gresham College and a member of Cambridge Scholars’ Editorial Advisory Board.

“This collection comprises peer-reviewed papers from international scholars with an eclectic range of qualifications from all over the world. The case studies are equally broad, ranging from Cameroon to Mexico, and so provide some interesting perspectives on language policy and provision based on both research and practical experience. The articles demonstrate that monolingualism is increasingly not the norm, but there is also the danger of over-concentration on English, which may move emphasis away from local and regional languages, and fail to take into account local realities. This title will be of interest to people working in global education or who have an interest in sociolinguistics in an educational context.”

—Professor Tim Connell, The Linguist, 53:5

We are always very happy to hear from authors with reviews of their titles and have published an ever-increasing number of reviews on our website. Being well-reviewed is a strong selling point for any book, and at Cambridge Scholars we have a number of ways in which we can help authors and editors to this end.

In the first instance, following publication our dedicated Reviews Editor will contact individuals and publications from our wide-ranging list of contacts. We have up to 20 review copies to send directly to any interested scholars or publications as standard. We appreciate that our authors have specialist knowledge in their subject areas, and we always welcome suggestions of potential reviewers both during and after publication.
