Language Policy in Soviet Union
by Grenoble

The former Soviet Union provides one of the most interesting examples
of a nation state's deliberate use of language policy to further its
political goals. Language Policy in the Soviet Union provides a
comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the development of this
policy at both national and local levels. It is meant for linguists,
policy makers, and specialists on the USSR and Eastern Europe. The
book is organized in such a way that it can be read in its entirety or
selectively, with an introduction to the USSR and its ethnolinguistic
makeup, followed by a chronology of Soviet language policy and its
general development. Subsequent chapters are organized regionally,
with surveys of the geographic and ethnolinguistic regions of the
Soviet Union and a discussion of language policy and its impact in
each of them.
