Handbook of language & ethnic identity by Joshua A Fishman( Book )

"This volume presents the first comprehensive introduction to the connection between language and ethnicity. Since the "ethnic revival" of the last twenty years, there has been a substantial and interdisciplinary change in our understanding of the link between these fundamental aspects of our identity. The distinguished sociolinguist Joshua Fishman has commissioned 28 previously unpublished papers on every facet of the subject." "Expansive in its scope, the Handbook of Language and Ethnic Identity is truly interdisciplinary, and the contributors are all distinguished figures in their fields. Each chapter is followed by thought-provoking questions and essential bibliography, and Fishman pulls together the various views, showing how they differ and how they are alike."--Jacket
