Title: Language Policy and Language Conflict in Afghanistan and Its Neighbors
Subtitle: The Changing Politics of Language Choice
Edited By: Harold F. Schiffman
Brian Spooner
URL: http://www.brill.nl/language-policy-and-language-conflict-afghanistan-and-its-neighbors
Series Title: Brill's Studies in South and Southwest Asian Languages
Description:

Language policy in Central Asia, Afghanistan and the immediately surrounding
neighboring countries has a long and varied history. The Iranian revolution of
1978, the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, and the ongoing conflict in
Afghanistan since 2001 have left the area in a state of flux. This volume gives a
better picture about what is official and explicit, what is not official but implicit or
general practice, and what the likely future developments might be. It is very
clear that multilingualism, whether it involves Persian, Russian or English in
addition to other languages, not only has long been a part of the scene, but will
probably continue to be so.
