Reviews

“This edited book provides a collection of twelve chapters discussing issues in relation to the notion of ‘Semiperiphery’ with a special focus on academic writing. … this is a very enlightening volume clarifying the key notions and challenges in the semiperiphery. … will definitely be of interest to all researchers into this topic and provide guidance to scholars in exploring such tensions or conflicts of academic writing and publishing in other geographically and economically semiperipheral contexts.” (Erdem Akbas, JELF Journal of English as a Lingua Franca, Vol. 5 (1), 2016)

'This well-edited collection is timely, surprising, and important.' - English for Specific Purposes
