About this book

Language policies impact language choice, language prestige, and language spread. Rising regional integration, both formal and informal, adds to the sensitivity and complexity of language politics, whether in North America, South America or Europe. This book shows how language politics vary across the Americas and contrast with Europe.

Reviews

“The general framework for the text is an analysis of how language and politics interact in a world of ever-increasing globalization. … Various charts and tables throughout the text help illustrate important points. The text is neatly organized into seven chapters, and the writing style is relatively straightforward. … Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and faculty.” (K. C. Williams, Choice, Vol. 54 (1), September, 2016)
