By Sari Pietikäinen, FinlandAlexandra Jaffe, Long BeachHelen Kelly-Holmes, and Nikolas Coupland

Title: Language Policy and Nation-Building in Post-Apartheid South Africa
Written By: Jon Orman
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-8890-2
Series Title: Language Policy
Description:

> Theoretically rigorous and innovative - pushes forward theoretical
understanding of concepts such as national identity and language
policy/planning and the way in which they interrelate.

> The first chapters of the book address universal themes and issues in the
study of national identities and language policy and planning. This makes
the book accessible and interesting for sociolinguists, language policy and
ethnicity/nationalism scholars in general, beyond a strictly South African
context.

> Interdisciplinary, non-linguicentric, discussion of the South-African
situation, including a chapter on the issue of Afrikaans.
