Title: Language Loyalty, Continuity and Change
Subtitle: Joshua A. Fishman's Contributions to Interanational Sociolinguistics

Rakhmiel Peltz
Harold F. Schiffman
Series Title: Bilingual Education and Bilingualism

This short volume provides a comprehensive and synoptic view of Joshua A.
Fishman's contributions to international sociolinguistics. The two
integrative essays provide readers with the essential understandings of
Fishmanian sociolinguistics and his contributions to Yiddish scholarship.
The essays serve as a valuable summary and introduction to the sociology of

bibliography prepared by Gella Schweid Fishman, as well as Fishman's own
concluding sentiments, complement the integrative essays.
