Abstract:

Language and Politics in Africa is a fine collection of both empirically and 
theoretically based articles from across the African continent and beyond, but 
all focusing on the twin issues of Language and Politics in post colonial African 
countries. The authors offer critical perspectives on contemporary theoretical, 
empirical and policy issues related to language and how such issues manifest 
themselves at the inevitable interface with politics in a number of African 
countries. Coming at a time when most African countries are still grappling with 
language policy and planning issues while others are increasingly having to 
contend with the political outcomes of linguistically and ethnically 
heterogeneous nation-states, the present volume is a must read for scholars 
and students who are interested on the twin issues of language and politics 
since it represents one of the first attempts at documenting how language and 
politics affect each other in a number of African countries. The volume is 
divided into two sections dealing with the politics of language and the language 
of politics in African countries.
