About this book

After 1918 Central Europe's multiethnic empires were replaced by nation-states, which gave rise to an unusual ethnolinguistic kind of nationalism. This book provides a detailed history and linguistic analysis of how the many languages of Central Europe have developed from the 10th century to the present day.

About the authors

Tomasz Kamusella is a Reader in the Institute of Transnational and Spatial History at the University of St Andrews, UK. He researches language politics in a comparative and interdisciplinary manner. His other interest is the rise and spread of ethnolinguistic nationalism as the primary ideology of nation-formation and state-building in Central Europe.

Reviews

“Kamusella’s latest work supplies the reader with an impressive array of historical information on a great number of lects and is highly ambitious in its aim to cover the linguistic developments in Central Europe during the last millennium. … this book makes a valuable contribution to an important field of study. … very useful reading for, say, specialists in one Central European lect who wish to learn more about the broader Central European picture.” (Gesine Argent, Journal of Historical Sociolinguistics, Vol. 2 (1), 2016)
