Summary
"This book offers a critical exploration of the role of English in postcolonial societies such as India, specifically focusing on some local ways in which it falls along the lines of a class-based divide (with ancillary ones of gender and caste as well). The book argues that issues of inequality, subordination and unequal value seem to revolve directly around the general positioning of English in relation to vernacular languages."--BOOK JACKET
