A look at the politics of language instruction for students of colour. A fresh, cutting-edge work, The Skin that We Speak takes the discussion of language in the classroom beyond the highly-charged war of idioms - in which English only' means standard English only - and provides teachers and parents with a thoughtful exploration of the varieties of English spoken and the layers of politics, power and identity that those forms carry.'
