Abstract:

The former Soviet Union provides one of the most interesting examples
of a nation state's deliberate use of language policy to further its
political goals. Language Policy in the Soviet Union provides a
comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the development of this
policy at both national and local levels. It is meant for linguists,
policy makers, and specialists on the USSR and Eastern Europe.

The book is organized in such a way that it can be read in its
entirety or selectively, with an introduction to the USSR and its
ethnolinguistic makeup, followed by a chronology of Soviet language
policy and its general development. Subsequent chapters are organized
regionally, with surveys of the geographic and ethnolinguistic regions
of the Soviet Union and a discussion of language policy and its impact
in each of them.
