Abstract:

English-Only Europe? explores the role of languages in the process of
European integration. Languages are central to the development of an
integrated Europe. The way in which the European Union deals with
multilingualism has serious implications for both individual member
countries and international relations.
 
In this book, Robert Phillipson considers whether the contemporary
expansion of English represents a serious threat to other European
languages. After exploring the implications of current policies,
Phillipson argues the case for more active language policies to
safeguard a multilingual Europe. Drawing on examples of countries with
explicit language policies such as Canada and South Africa, the book
sets out Phillipson's vision of an inclusive language policy for
Europe, and describes how it can be attained.

"Globalisation and EU enlargement mean that languages from the whole
of Europe are coming into even closer contact. This perceptive book
makes a sweeping Grand Tour of the political, cultural and economic
issues that we all consequently face, and I hope that those who frame
language policy will be influenced by it." Neil Kinnock,
Vice-President of the European Commission
