Edited By: Andrew Alexander Simpson
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199226481
Description:

Language and National Identity in Asia is a comprehensive introduction to
the role of language in the construction and development of nations and
national identities in Asia.

Leading scholars from all over the world investigate the role languages
have played and now play in the formation of the national and social
identity in countries throughout South, East, and Southeast Asia. They
consider the relation of the regions' languages to national, ethnic, and
cultural identity, and examine the status of and interactions between
majority, official, and minority languages.

Illustrated with maps and accessibly written this book will interest all
those concerned to understand the dynamics of social change in some of the
most important countries in the world. It will appeal to all those
studying, researching, or teaching issues in Asian society, language, and
politics from a comparative perspective.
