John Benjamins Publishing announces a new work in Sociolinguistics:

Language and National Identity. Comparing France and Sweden.

This book re-examines the relationship between language and national
identity. Unlike many previous studies, it employs a comparative
approach: France and Sweden have been chosen as case studies both for
their similarities (e.g. both are member states of the European Union)
as well as their important differences (e.g. France subscribes in
principle to a civic model of national identity, whereas the basis of
Swedish identity is undeniably ethnic). It is precisely differences
such as these which allow for a more comprehensive understanding of
the ethnolinguistic implications of some of the major challenges
currently facing France, Sweden and other European countries:
regionalism, immigration, European integration and globalization.

The present volume benefits from the use of a multidisciplinary
approach, and differs from others on the market because of the variety
of methods of inquiry used. A series of societal analyses is
complemented by an empirical component, bringing a more grounded
understanding to the issue of language and national identity.
