In this thought-provocative work, Yasemin Tezgiden Cakcak skillfully destabilizes our inherent assumptions about the link between English language teaching and teacher education by resituating a complex myriad of issues in a broader sociopolitical context…A transformative intellectual experience for those who seek alternatives to blind practices propagated by neoliberal policies, and forge counter-hegemonic spaces and pathways towards a critical English language teaching and teacher education.
