Summary
This book proposes, examines and unpacks the notion of unequal Englishes as a way to understand English today. Unlike many studies on the pluralization of English, the volume assumes that inequalities and Englishes are inextricably linked and must be understood and theorized together.

Summary expansion
Unequal Englishes challenges the widely held assumption that languages and linguistic varieties are equal, and explores the various ways we can understand, examine and transform inequalities of Englishes. Written by engaging and well-known scholars of language, education and politics, the chapters in the volume offer a wide range of perspectives on the complex but interwoven relationships between inequalities and Englishes, with an expansive geopolitical trajectory which includes the Philippines, Cuba, China, Canada, India, Malaysia, the United States, Singapore and South Korea. Their specific social and ideological contexts of analyses are wide-ranging, including textbooks and classrooms; teachers, would-be teachers and students; call centers; linguistic landscapes; stories, narratives and jokes. The volume mobilizes the notion of unequal Englishes as one way to understand the global spread of English today
