Reviews

'Overall, this is a very interesting volume that gathers together a wide ranging set of case studies and analyses of the LL and its implications for minority languages and minorities themselves. Many of the chapters break new ground, either in terms of the language varieties or geographical locations they consider, or the theoretical positions and research methodologies they combine... This is an inmportant work for anyone interested in LL research and on the status of minority languages. It comprehensively demonstrates the inter-disciplinary nature of LL research, showcasing the wealth of data available and the robust theoretically informative lenses through which the representation of minority languages and cultures may be understood.' Maggie Scott, University of Salford, Current Issues in Language Planning, Sept. 2012
