Overview

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 The distinguished sociolinguist Joshua Fishman has commissioned 28 previously unpublished papers on every facet of the subject.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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The Handbook includes a great variety of topics and approaches...Handbooks and encyclopedias are susceptible to dry, authoritative accounts of received wisdom. Few of the chapters fall into this category...[C]hapter authors present a great deal of fascinating material and arguments debunking stereotypes...This volume achieves its stated goals--it is accessible to non-specialist readers and provides a wealth of interesting information for specialists."--Anthropology & Education Quarterly
