Abstract:

This text provides an overview of bi- and multilingualism as a worldwide
phenomenon. It features comprehensive discussions of many of the linguistic,
social, political, and educational issues found in an increasingly multilingual
nation and world. To this end, the book takes the Chicano-Latino community of
Southern California, where Spanish-English bilingualism has over a century and
a half of history, and presents a detailed case study, thereby situating the
community in a much broader social context. Spanish is the second most-
widely spoken language in the U.S. after English, yet, for the most part, its
speakers form a language minority that essentially lacks the social, political,
and educational support necessary to derive the many cognitive,
socioeconomic, and educational benefits that proficient bilingualism can
provide. The issues facing Spanish-English bilinguals in the Los Angeles area
are relevant to nearly every bi- and multilingual community irrespective of
nation, language, and/or ethnicity.
