The four volumes in this Major Work comprise selected articles on language policy and language planning issues in Asia published after 2000. Volume I includes articles covering theoretical and contemporary macrolanguage policy issues such as language and migration policies, and medium of instruction (MOI) policies in East and South Asia, and the ASEAN regions. English language policy and planning issues are investigated from the point of cosmopolitanism, capitalism and language identity. Volume II focuses on the recent development of English in education and testing as a means of social screening processes, reviewing cases from Malaysia, Myanmar, India and Japan. The studies show unequal access to English education and the resulting gap in socio-economic status. Volume III continues discussing recent issues on the spread of English in country-specific contexts, including English-medium instruction (EMI) and English as a lingua franca (ELF). The articles in this volume show unprecedented issues due to the significant increase in the number of EMI (English Medium Instruction) programmes and courses within Asia in the past 20 years. Volume IV is a collection of articles that investigate language policy issues focusing on languages other than English (LOTE) such as indigenous, heritage and ethnic minority language and home language literacy in contemporary multi-language/cultural society. Sign language of LOTE is also considered as a crucial keyword in the volume.
