An Introduction to Language Policy: Theory and Method Review

T. Ricento, ed.

A collection of contributions from experts in the field, this book is
for anyone who wants to get a sense of what language policy and
planning is about. While Bernard Spolsky’s book is more coherent and
in-depth, it does not cover the broad range of topics that this book
does. Starting with the theoretical orientations, as any book should,
it goes on to talk about various methodological approaches to the
field, and ends with discussions of different areas under discussion
within the field. A great complement to Spolsky’s book.
