Reviews

'This is a delightful, scholarly, moving and important work, in which the voices of people immersed in multilingual living can be heard giving weight to ideas on hybridity and postmodern multiplicity. Real life pokes its head in here, triumphantly demonstrating what it means to live in a linguistically complex world. Social research should always be this good.' - Stephen Frosh, Professor of Psychology and Vice-master of Birkbeck College,University of London.
