(LANGUAGE POWER AND SOCIAL PROCESS 5)

This book observes and critiques controversies on the genesis and the
character of Israeli Hebrew. Did it emerge through revival? Did
Ben-Yehuda play a role in it? Is Hebrew a normal language now? The
hegemonic ideology of the revival of Hebrew is shown to have been
harmonious with various Zionist streams, as well as with its rival,
Canaanism. The effects of revivalism are evaluated, and argument is
made in favor of non-revivalist alternatives in linguistics and in
language education.
