Subject: Request for Non-English Sociolinguistics Textbooks

I would be grateful for references (preferably detailed enough for a 
library to purchase with) to textbooks on general sociolinguistics in 
languages other than English, especially:

Arabic
Chinese
French
German
Italian
Japanese 
Spanish

Any comments or (anti-)recommendations on them are also welcome, as 
also any knowledge about their availability in print.
Books with a lesser scope (eg, surveys of sociolinguistic knowledge in 
a particular language area above) are also useful to me.
Obviously, a pointer to a websource for such titles is also good.
Finally, any on-line publications in these areas would be useful.


thanks very much,

Prof. Peter L. Patrick
