Rezensionen
'An important contribution to our understanding of language and ethnicity, this collection problematizes traditional social categories of class, race, gender and ethnicity. It reminds us that 'the circumstances of language maintenance are just as politicized as those of language spread, and just as likely to serve nefarious political and economic interests-and it is just as incumbent on linguists to study and call attention to them.' Most importantly, this volume underscores the value of approaches to the study of language and ethnicity that fall outside the traditional sociolinguistic focus on language variation.' - Guadalupe Valdés, Bonnie Katz Tenenbaum Professor of Education and Professor of Spanish and Portuguese, Stanford University
