Based on detailed empirical analyses, the book intends to fuel the
theoretical discussion on language, history, and society.

 In Corsica, spelling contests, road signs, bilingual education bills
and Corsican language newscasts leave language planners and ordinary
speakers deeply divided over how to define what \147counts\148 as Corsican and
how it is connected with cultural identity. In Ideologies in Action,
Alexandra Jaffe explores the complex interrelationship between
linguistic ideologies and practices on the French island of Corsica.
This detailed exploration of the ideological and political underpinnings
of three decades of language planning raises fundamental questions about
what it means to \147save\148 a minority language, and the way in which
specific cultural, political, and ideological contexts shape the
\147success\148 and \147failures\148 of linguistic engineering efforts.
