The Routledge Handbook of Multilingualism provides a comprehensive survey of the field of multilingualism for a global readership, and an overview of the research which situates multilingualism in its social, cultural and political context. The handbook includes an introduction and five sections with thirty two chapters by leading international contributors.

The introduction charts the changing landscape of social and ethnographic research on multilingualism (theory, methods and research sites) and it foregrounds key contemporary debates. Chapters are structured around sub-headings such as: early developments, key issues related to theory and method, new research directions.

This handbook offers an authoritative guide to shifts over time in thinking about multilingualism as well as providing an overview of the range of contemporary themes, debates and research sites.The Routledge Handbook of Multilingualism is the ideal resource for postgraduate students of multilingualism, as well as those studying education and anthropology.

'The editors and the contributors have done an impressive job in putting together this landmark volume. The comprehensive coverage and critical edge make the handbook an invaluable resource for the novice and expert alike. It will no doubt be read and referred to again and again.' Li Wei, Birkbeck College, University of London, UK 'The field has come to expect nothing less from scholars such as Marilyn Martin-Jones, Adrian Blackledge, and Angela Creese: A superbly edited collection of articles that are cutting-edge, comprehensive, and compelling. The Routledge Handbook of Multilingualism is an outstanding contribution to contemporary scholarship.' Bonny Norton, Professor and Distinguished University Scholar, University of British Columbia, Canada "The Routledge Handbook of Multilingualism is a great addition to the field, providing an array of valuable discussions, especially theoretical ones."
