Description - Language, Ethnicity and the State, Volume 1 by C. O'Reilly

Developments in the European Union since 1990 have been largely positive from the perspective of stateless and minority ethnic groups and the survival and prosperity of minority languages. This selection of sociologically and ethnographically oriented work enables the reader to compare developments in different ethno-linguistic revival movements within the European Union. The contributions also explore the impact of EU policy and discourse on the individual movements and the orientation of Western Europe as a whole towards linguistic heterogeneity and cultural diversity. A companion volume examines the status of minority languages in post 1989 Eastern Europe.
