Another Favourite Book

I have a weakness for buying books online.  I recently received a 2008 book that I’m really pleased about called “Performing English with a Postcolonial Accent: Ethnographic Narratives from Mexico” by Angeles Clemente and Michael Higgins.  It reads really well alongside Suresh Canagarajah’s 1999 book: Resisting Linguistic Imperialism in English Teaching.  Both of these books are a welcome relief from “native-speakerism” and deficit views of language variation.
