Reviews

“This is a concise, well-organized book elaborating language, identity, and education in the context of migration and globalization. … As a researcher in critical discourse analysis and language education, I would highly recommend this book to those who are interested in language racism, multilingual education, language policies, and ideologies in educational language.” (Tingting Hu, Journal of Language, Identity & Education, Vol. 17 (2), March, 2018)
