Aria Razfar in: Linguist List 21.2592
"Alexandre Duchêne s Ideologies across Nations is a timely contribution to a variety of issues that are becoming increasingly relevant to applied linguistics and sociolinguistics. Such issues include the ways in which institutional practices affect the formulation of policies, possible responses to the challenges of multiculturalism and the politics of identity, and the increasingly complex relationships between communities located at the intra-national, nationaland international levels. Given that much of the recent theorizing regarding multiculturalism has tended to come from political and legal theorists (Benhabib 2002; Ford 2005; Taylor 1994), this book is all the more timely, highlighting the value of a linguistically sensitive approach."
Lionel Wee Hock Ann in: Journal of Sociolinguistics 13.4/2009
"Despite this caution and professional cynicism, throughout the volume I detect a note of intelligent optimism regarding the success of interventionist linguistic minority protection. It is as if the author is reminding us that once we can detect what is really going on, behind the scenes and within the text so to speak, we can modify the worst abuses of irrelevance and inactivity as practised by the UN. However, from my point of view, we can only do so if authors as expert and subtle as Alexandre Duchêne provide us with the overarching conceptual framework and specific ideological ammunition to fight the good fight. In that respect this is one of the most impressive and powerful illustrations of the claims of critical discourse analysis to shape our thoughts, and I for one am much in the author s debt for his enlightenment of the UN s continued practice of weaving tangled webs."
Colin H. Williams in: Multlingua
"Through a thorough survey of UN archives, the author lays out why the construction of minorities by the United Nations should not be seen primarily in terms of human rights, but as a tool to protect nation-states, the constituent members of this international organisation. By tackling this topic in a consistently organised and elegantly written discursive analysis, Duchêne provides an innovative contribution to the current debates on multiculturalism, diversity management and trans- and sub-national governance."
Till Burckardt in:Language Policy
"Si cet ouvrage ouvre un champ nouveau du point de vue de la méthodologie d analyse en sociolinguistique, en intégrant les questions historiques et discursives bien souvent laissées à la marge, [cet ouvrage] produit, de surcroît, une réelle rupture épistémologique dans l étude du rapport entre langage et société.( ) Le lecteur l aura compris : ce livre est indispensable aux sociolinguistes et ouvre la voie à une ère nouvelle dans notre réflexion sur le langage."
Cécile Canut in: Langage et Société
"One of the novelties, from my point of view, is the interactional dimension in the analysis of discourses (the resultant official documents and the reports of the debates in the process of their construction) in order to reconstruct a genealogy of discourses about (linguistic) minorities. The reconstruction of the debate settings/arena of the Commission and Sub-Commission responsible for minorities rights tells us about the immediate conditions of production. In that sense, Goffman s (1959) idea of space of performance, as used by Duchêne, puts us in the role of witnesses of discursive events in which the reader participates through the delicate work of the author in showing us the discursive processes and movements, products of the negotiations made by the members. Such study of the debates reveals the different ideological positions and what was at stake for each party."
