Abstract:
			
Developments in the European Union over the last decade have been
largely positive from the perspective of stateless and minority ethnic
groups and the survival and prosperity of minority languages. This
selection of sociologically and ethnographically oriented work enables
the reader to compare developments in different ethno-linguistic
revival movements within the European Union. The contributions also
explore the impact of EU policy and discourse on the individual
movements and the orientation of Western Europe as a whole towards
linguistic heterogeneity and cultural diversity. A companion volume
(0-333-92924-1) examines the status of minority languages in post-1989
Eastern Europe.
