This volume examines the role of language in the present and past creation of social, cultural, and national identities in Europe, considering the way in which language may sometimes reinforce national identity (as in England) while tending to subvert the nation-state (as in the United Kingdom).

The book describes the interactive roles of language, ethnicity, culture, and institutions in the character and formation of nationalism and identity throughout Europe. A select team of international contributors consider various questions drawing on evidence from the majority of European countries.

The book concludes with a consideration of the current relative status of the languages of Europe and how these and the identities they reflect are changing and evolving.

About the Author:

Stephen Barbour is at University of Oxford. Cathie Carmichael is at Middlesex University.

Review:

`Each chapter is full of fascinating sociolinguistic and historical facts but together the volume provides a wide-ranging set of approaches to language and nationalism, so dense that it defies summarizing, and no brief review can do justice to the wealth of information and arguments in this
volume.'
Michael Clyne, Department of Linguistics, University of Melbourne

`The political situation in Central and Eastern Europe since 1989 has reawakened general interest in the link between language and nationalism. This remarkable book goes a very long way to explain and illustrate this link ... Barbour, Carmichael, and their colleagues have given a wide
interdisciplinary readership a very interesting, informative, and readable volume.'
Michael Clyne, Department of Linguistics, University of Melbourne

`excellently edited and printed and certainly [a] valuable addition to the libraries of all those who are fascinated by one of the most exciting topics in modern linguistics'
Sociolinguistica 15

`a well-written, well-edited volume, with a wealth of information for linguists and non-linguists alike.'
Linguist List 12.1554

`commendable accuracy in the spelling of non-English words'
Linguist List 12.1554

`The study's emphasis on history would make the book a good companion text or resource for a course on the historical development of literary languages. Also, the large number of succinct definitions of relevant linguistic and sociological terminology ... make the book well-suited to students
and accessible to non-linguists.'
