I would like to acknowledge the generous help I received from the Australian Research Council in 1994 and 1995, which enabled me to complete this project.
Thanks are due to my wife, Jackie, for her editorial help with the book, and to the many friends and colleagues who have discussed the issue of linguistic imperialism with me: in particular, Stephen Wurm, George Grace, René Dirven, Martin Pütz, Tove Skutnabb-Kangas, Robert Phillipson, Rob Amery and the fellows of Linacre College, Oxford. I am particularly grateful for the many references and documents they have fed me over the years and the good advice they have given me.
