In this text, ten linguistic anthropologists integrate two often segregated domains: politics and language. It addresses the role of language ideologies in state formation, nationalism and the maintenance of ethic groups, as well as the creation of national, ethnic and professional indentities.

About the Author:

Paul V. Kroskrity is Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Los Angeles, and coeditor of "Native American Language Ideologies: Beliefs, Practices, and Struggles in Indian Country."

Review:

... both advances the theoretical framework available to students of language ideology and offers a variety of points of entry to that literature for scholars generally interested in institutional power structures.impossible to study language phenomena without considering political assumptions and their consequences. The University is directly implicated in these dilemmas, of course, and books like this one should help Academia to define and modify its position ona continuum ranging from ivory tower to ntellectual bridge : Regimes of Language could, therefore, be profitably prescribed as early reading for students in the humanities and the social sciences.' - Patrick C. Douaud in Anthropos
