The fate of languages has been closely linked to political power
relationships throughout human history. Political shifts in the
international system today continue to affect linguistic patterns,
still in a state of flux following the end of the Cold War. This book
considers the effects of present-day trends in global politics on the
relative status of languages, and the directions in which the
linguistic hierarchy might develop in the future. It appeals to
researchers and students of sociolinguistics and language planning as
well as of international relations.
