This volume brings together key writings since the 1992 publication of "Linguistic Imperialism Continued" - Robert Phillipson's controversial benchmark volume, which triggered a major re-thinking of the English teaching profession by connecting the field to wider political and economic forces. Analyzing how the global dominance of English in all domains of power is maintained, legitimized and persists in the twenty-first century, "Linguistic Imperialism Continued" reflects and contributes in important ways to understanding these developments.
