LANGUAGE, ETHNICITY AND THE STATE
Volume 1: Minority Languages In The European Union

Edited by Camille C. O'Reilly

ABOUT THE BOOK

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
comprehensive 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.

KEY POINTS 

1. The most comprehensive edited collection available on the
linguistic-ethnographic issue

2. Topic of minority languages and ethnic identity of great current
relevance and importance, and is a growing research area

3. Probability of expansion of the EU makes this volume all the more
relevant and timely
