"A lively and engaging portrait of the state of the art of Japanese applied linguistics as practiced by a new generation of scholars on both sides of the Pacific. It would be hard to imagine a more convincing testament to the way applied linguistics has outgrown its narrow association with second language education and come to embrace a concern with language use across the totality of human experience in the real world. Certain to become a standard in the field, this collection offers a rich variety of perspectives on the social, political, and educational dimensions of language use in Japan today in a way that promises to inform numerous disciplines both within and beyond the linguistic sciences proper." - Professor Wesley M. Jacobsen, Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations, Harvard University, USA
