The Local Politics of Global English analyzes linguistic globalization in five countries that differ greatly in both their degree of global integration and their use of English. Concepts of hegemony and resistance, elites and subalterns, and liberalization and democratization are incorporated in case studies that provide insight into the politics of linguistic globalization from above and below.

Industry Reviews

In this study, Sonntag skillfully integrates a number of disparate concepts and ideas (such as 'hegemony, ' 'resistance, ' 'globalization, ' and 'subaltern, ' to mention just a few), and links them to the spread of English globally. In this she deftly reveals some unexpected, 'topsy-turvy' developments.--Harold F. Schiffman, University of Pennsylvania
