A well compiled reader, with excellent coverage of the fundamental concepts and current issues in English as an International Language. Most abridged papers are from world's authorities in this field, e.g. David Crystal, David Graddol and Braj Kachru.

a good introduction to the subject July 6 2001
By "daniel_sp" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book contains abriged essays by the big names in EIL (English as an International Language)such as Kachru or Graddol. It is thus very suitable as an introduction to the subject. However, I felt that the last section did not really fit into the topic any more and was somewhat superflous. Still, the book can be well used as an awareness raising text.

A good guide July 1 2006
By Tyson-Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read this book as a teacher of English as a foreign language. When you teach EFL in the UK your experience is different to when you teach it abroad. Then you become aware of many Englishes. Your own teaching is assimilated in different ways.

There are also teachers who are not native speakers of English, so their teaching reaches their students already filtered by a different mind and vocal apparatus.

Another interesting section of this book is the guidance on variants of English and what is or not standard English. It sets boundaries that are very handy when you are in a teaching situation. You cannot simply impose your brand of Englsih to everyone.
