Here's what you say about us...

David Cassels Johnson is Assistant Professor of Education at the University of Iowa, USA. He was previously Assistant Professor at the College of Education, Washington State University. David specialises in critical sociolinguistics and language policy research, focusing on the interaction between language policies and educational opportunity for minority language users.

"It is an ideal textbook for use in introductory courses to language policy, or as a supplemental text for related courses that include a unit on language policy. In addition, it should be placed in the hands of graduate students and other scholars embarking on their first research study in LPP. . Johnson provides an excellent overview of the development of our field, our current status, and new practical methods and approaches grounded in strong theoretical arguments." (Wayne E. Wright, Language Policy, Vol. 15, 2016)

"This book is an important contribution and valuable addition to the study of LPP. [...] It is a relevant and very readable

book, which I read with pleasure and recommend without hesitation." Language and Education

"Students and researchers will find in Language Policy a readerfriendly book that summarizes major state-of-the-art developments in the field and shows new paths for research, all the while making a convincing call on readers to advocate for multilingualism. Johnson's book is without a doubt an excellent reference for master's- or doctoral-level education courses that include or focus on the study of language policy." - Anthropology & Education
