Abstract:

Language policy in Central Asia, Afghanistan and the immediately surroundingneighboring countries has a long and varied history. The Iranian revolution of1978, the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, and the ongoing conflict inAfghanistan since 2001 have left the area in a state of flux. This volume gives abetter picture about what is official and explicit, what is not official but implicit orgeneral practice, and what the likely future developments might be. It is veryclear that multilingualism, whether it involves Persian, Russian or English inaddition to other languages, not only has long been a part of the scene, but willprobably continue to be so.
