Language and ethnicity in minority sociolinguistic perspective

Joshua A. Fishman

This is a selection of Professor Fishman's writings during the past two decades on language and ethnicity in minority perspective, concentrating on six major topics, each of which is prefaced by a specially written introduction, as is the volume as a whole, thereby integrating the material and focusing it on a minority group concern. Fisherman's well known dedication to a worldwide cultural democracy and cultural pluralism, not only as moral imperatives but as empirical assets, shines through all of these selections and unifies them philosophically as well as scientifically.
