Language and national identity in Asia

Andrew Simpson

Oxford University Press, 2007 - 466 páginas

Language and National Identity in Asia is a comprehensive introduction
to the role of language in the construction and development of nations
and national identities in Asia.
Leading scholars from all over the world investigate the role
languages have played and now play in the formation of the national
and social identity in countries throughout South, East, and Southeast
Asia. They consider the relation of the regions' languages to
national, ethnic, and cultural identity, and examine the status of and
interactions between majority, official, and minority languages.
Illustrated with maps and accessibly written this book will interest
all those concerned to understand the dynamics of social change in
some of the most important countries in the world. It will appeal to
all those studying, researching, or teaching issues in Asian society,
language, and politics from a comparative perspective.
