This volume covers the language situation in Ecuador, Mexico and Paraguay, explaining the linguistic diversity, the historical and political contexts and the current language situation, including language-in-education planning, the role of the media, the role of religion, and the roles of indigenous and non-indigenous languages. The authors are indigenous and/or have been participants in the language-planning context. This volume contains monographs on Ecuador, Mexico and Paraguay, which are not well represented in the recent international language policy and planning literature, and draws together the existing published research in this field. The purpose of the areal volumes in this series is to present up-to-date information on polities, particularly those that are not well known to researchers in the field, thereby providing descriptions of language planning and policy in countries around the world. The longer range purpose of collecting comparable information on the full range of polities is to facilitate the development of a richer theory to guide language policy and planning in polities that undertake the development of national and local language policy initiatives.

Review:

The volume provides accessible and useful information on language policy initiatives in Latin America, and is an excellent reference. This volume makes a wonderful addition to the language planning and policy series.

(Donna Starks, La Trobe University Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 33:1, 2010)

This is an indispensable volume on language planning and language policy in Latin America because it provides accurate, comprehensive and up-to-date information on Ecuador, Mexico and Paraguay - each country with similar issues and challenges.

(Frank Nuessel, University of Louisville Language Problems and Language Planning 33:1)
