In this provocative and compelling new look at the course of empire, Robert McCrum, coauthor of the best-selling book and television series The Story of English, shows how the language of the Anglo-American imperium has become the world's lingua franca. In fascinating detail, he describes the ever-accelerating changes wrought on the language by the far-flung cultures claiming citizenship in the new hegemony. In the 21st century, writes the author, English + Microsoft = Globish.

A most interesting format for a history of the English speaking world. It is an easy and informative listen. I've enjoyed reading sections at a time rather than reading straight through. Many sections I have repeated time and time again.
