The political and social upheavals following 1989 have had a
significant impact on the minority languages of Eastern Europe. There
have been attempts at enlightened treatment of minority linguistic
groups in some of the new states but in others such groups have been
openly oppressed. This volume draws on sociologically and
ethnographically oriented work from a number of disciplines to allow
the reader to compare developments in the different states, and to
examine the interplay of language issues, ethnic nationalism, and
processes of state formation and restructuring in the various
political and historical contexts of Central and Eastern Europe. A
companion volume (0-333-92925-X) examines the status of minority
languages in the European Union.
