About this book

Arguing against a common sense view of bilingualism as the co-existence of two linguistic systems, this volume develops a critical perspective which approaches bilingualism as a wide variety of sets of sociolinguistic practices connected to the construction of social difference and of social inequality under specific historical conditions.

Reviews

'...contain[s] a significant amount of useful and well-researched debate, much of which may be the source of some interesting debates. It is certainly a useable book for the postgraduate researcher at which it is aimed, as well as for the more established academic.' - David Hill, Journal of Sociolinguistics
