Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Data-driven, carefully documented, and well researched, this volume is introduced by Potowski (Univ of Illinois, Chicago) with both a compelling argument for a language-inclusion policy and a neatly organized, comprehensive review of the history of the interplay of linguistics and politics since the first settlement of the linguistically diverse US. These rich essays cumulatively present a comprehensive examination that will serve those interested in linguistics and social sciences, including anthropology, education and public policy. Highly recommended." —Choice
