'To write a great introductory text you have to make a statement about fundamental issues. Here, the notion of choice bridges the gap between micro and macrosociolinguistics and brings both cohesion and edge to the book.' Frans Gregersen, The Lanchart Centre, University of Copenhagen

'This is the book I'd [choose] to introduce students to the fast developing field of sociolinguistics, for it combines clear explanations with intriguing examples.' Bernard Spolsky, Professor Emeritus, Bar-Ilan University

'A highly original synthesis of decades of sociolinguistics research, and an agenda setter, around the key notion of 'choice', for many years to come.' Li Wei, Birkbeck, University of London
