In this book, Mario Saraceni argues for the need to redefine the manner in which we study English and the forces that are contributing to its constant evolution.

Many important points about the spread of English worldwide, and a really good synopsis of where scholarship about English in the world has been in the last 30-40 years. The only problem with this book -- and I do think it's a problem -- is that it literally ends with what would seem to be the main point -- namely, that English has been "relocated" in today's globalized world -- and only a very scant explanation of what that means or what its implications are for scholarship, pedagogy, etc.
