Description

This book presents a sociolinguistics of academic publishing from an historical and contemporary perspective.

Using Swedish academia as a case study, it focuses on publishing practices within history and psychology.

His central argument, following the French sociologist Bourdieu, is that the trend towards publishing in English should be understood as a social strategy, developed in response to such transformations.
