Description - The Politics of English by Marnie Holborow

A major reappraisal of the way in which language is both shaped by, and contributes to, social life. Taking a classical Marxist approach, Marnie Holborow provides a reconsideration of the ideological aspects of language. She focuses on three main areas: the global spread of English in relation to international capitalism and colonialism; the ideological underpinnings of standard English; and language and sexism.
