Title: The Early Days of Sociolinguistics: Memories and Reflections
Edited By: Christina Bratt Paulston
G. Richard Tucker
URL: http://www.ethnologue.com/show_product.asp?isbn=9781556712531
Series Title: Publications in Language Use and Education #5
Description:

This volume is a compendium of thirty-six articles by participants in the
development of the field of sociolinguistics. Edited by Christina Bratt
Paulston and G. Richard Tucker, themselves important contributors to the
discipline, the volume provides an insider's perspective on the issues,
both practical and theoretical, which motivated individuals and
institutions to turn to a view of language as inextricably connected to
society and culture.

This volume will be of interest not only to sociolinguists, but to
sociologists, social psychologists, anthropological linguists, and others
interested in applied linguistics. Moving a bit farther afield, it will
also be of interest to historians of science for its breadth of coverage of
the development of an increasingly important academic discipline and for
the important data it provides regarding the academic research milieu, the
zeitgeist, which spawned sociolinguistics as an area of inquiry.
