LANGUAGE, ETHNICITY AND THE STATE
Volume 2: Minority Languages in Eastern Europe Post-1989

Edited by Camille C. O'Reilly

ABOUT THE BOOK

The political and social upheavals following 1989 have had a
significant impact on the minority languages of Eastern Europe. This
comprehensive 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.

KEY POINTS 

1. Highly topical subject because of recent ethnic cleansing and forced
migrations in Eastern Europe

2. Offers a comprehensive survey of policies and experiences in minority
language communities in the region to enable researchers to compare
developments within different states

3. Area of growing interest because of the political imperatives and
relevance to many disciplines besides sociolinguistics, including
anthropology, sociology and politics
