The Routledge Handbook of English Language Teaching is the definitive reference volume for postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students of Applied Linguistics, ELT/TESOL, and Language Teacher Education, and for ELT professionals engaged in in-service teacher development and/or undertaking academic study. Progressing from ‘broader’ contextual issues to a ‘narrower’ focus on classrooms and classroom discourse, the volume’s inter-related themes focus on: ELT in the world: contexts and goals planning and organising ELT: curriculum, resources and settings methods and methodology: perspectives and practices second language learning and learners teaching language: knowledge, skills and pedagogy understanding the language classroom. The Handbook’s 39 chapters are written by leading figures in ELT from around the world. Mindful of the diverse pedagogical, institutional and social contexts for ELT, they convincingly present the key issues, areas of debate and dispute, and likely future developments in ELT from an applied linguistics perspective. Throughout the volume, readers are encouraged to develop their own thinking and practice in contextually appropriate ways, assisted by discussion questions and suggestions for further reading that accompany every chapter.

Wehrmacht in der NS-Diktatur In der Debatte über die Wehrmacht und ihre Verbrechen blieb der Kriegsschauplatz im Westen weitgehend ausgespart. Dabei hatten die Kämpfe der Wehrmacht gegen die Westalliierten und die französische Widerstandsbewegung während der Jahre 1943/44 kriegsentscheidende Bedeutung. Inwieweit gelang es der deutschen Führung, auch im Westen einen "Weltanschauungskrieg" zu entfesseln? Welche Rückwirkungen hatten die Erfahrungen im Ostkrieg auf die Kämpfe in Frankreich? Gab es Unterschiede zwischen Wehrmacht und Waffen-SS? Existierten an der Truppenbasis Handlungsspielräume, die sich sowohl in die eine wie die andere Richtung nutzen ließen? Peter Lieb erörtert diese Fragen erstmals auf breiter Quellengrundlage und schließt damit eine große Forschungslücke. Die 2005 an der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München angenommene Dissertation wurde mit dem Prix Guillaume Fichet - Octave Simon und dem Werner-Hahlweg-Förderpreis ausgezeichnet. "Peter Liebs umfangreiche, gründlich recherchierte und klar argumentierende Untersuchung über die deutsche Westfront 1943/44 ist ein gewichtiger Beitrag zu aktuellen Kontroversen und Polemiken über die ’Verbrechen der Wehrmacht‘, deren Hauptaugenmerk fast ausschließlich auf die Balkanländer, Polen und Russland gerichtet war und Nordafrika und Frankreich vernachlässigte."
