ABSTRACT
This issue of the journal "Language Policy" launches its third volume. With the increasing political tensions in the world at large as well as in the academy, it is hard to avoid taking extreme positions on critical issues. In much of the world today, language management seems, on the one hand, to involve meeting growing public demands for access to global English, while on the other, many governments try to pull in the opposite direction to bolster the status and use of their national symbolic languages. As Massini-Cagliari's paper in this issue shows, this can involve restating great traditions as national myths that ignore sociolinguistic reality. In this issue, for the first time, a list of books has been presented which was received during the past calendar year. The journal will consider proposals for special issues of Language Policy. The editor offers thanks to many scholars who share with editors, the responsibility for making sure that published articles meet the high standards set by the journal.
