Subject: summary of foreign-lang (non-Eng) sociolinguistics textbooks

A summary listing of introductory works on sociolinguistics -- written 
in languages other than English -- is now available at:

The books fall into two dichotomies: translations, and texts original 
to the language, on one hand; and on the other, they are either general 
surveys, or language-/region-specific treatments. 
	I would be happy to receive additions to this list, and -- more 
importantly -- brief evaluations of their usefulness, esp. by someone 
who has used any of them to teach. References to book reviews in 
English linguistics journals would also be welcome.

Thanks to all the correspondents who suggested or commented on titles: 
Enam Al-Wer, Barbara Avila-Shah, Laura Callahan, Rich Cameron, Karen 
Steffen Chung, Klaus Geyer, Uri Horesh, Ghada Khattab, Li Wei, Glenn 
Martinez, Miwa Nishimura, Masaki Oda, Claire Saillard, Stephan Schmid, 
Scott Schwenter, Jeff Siegel, Julio Viejo, James Walker, & Malcah 
Yaeger-Dror. To all many thanks, and sorry if I forgot anyone!
