"Stewart McCain's richly researched and thought-provoking new book is the latest contribution to the scholarly conversation on the Revolutionary invention of French linguistic nationalism. ... The Language Question under Napoleon will be required reading for scholars interested in the intersection between language, nationalism, and state formation in France." (Paul Cohen, H-France Review, Vol. 19 (217), November, 2019)
"Drawing on impressively wide-ranging research in national and provincial archives, this book painstakingly reconstructs the contours of Napoleonic language policy as it evolved and was applied throughout the First Empire. ... McCain's study presents an admirably nuanced analysis, not just of the politics of language in Napoleonic France, but also of cultural imperialism in both theory and practice." (Joseph Clarke, French History, Vol. 32 (03), September, 2018)
