Title: The Sociology of African American Language
Subtitle: A Language Planning Perspective
Written By: Charles DeBose
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403939705
Description:

The current state of knowledge of African American language is examined
from a broad, multidisciplinary perspective that includes its structure,
history, social role and educational implications, as well as the
linguistic scholarship from which it derives, as a case study of language
planning. A diverse array of topics including Hip-Hop culture, the Black
Church and the Ebonics controversy are unified by a pervasive theme of
latent conflict between academic knowledge and 'real world' knowledge of
Black language.
