Reviews

'This book is original in covering all of the Catalan-speaking areas to a grater oror lesser degree and providing detailed and up-to-date infromation on the laws, regulations and practices affecting the use of Catalan in all its historic territory... For anyone wanting to understand how Catalan has reached its current position, and to see how sophisticated langauge planning policies and implimentation strategies have contributed to its regeneration, editors Strubell and Boix-Fuster have produced an invaluable compilation of essays containg a wealth of refernces and information sources.' Anne Ife, Anglia Ruskin University, Current Issues in Language Planning, Sept. 2012

'...the details of a dynamic language policy situation presented here will no doubt prove illuminating when comparisons are ultimately drawn with other linguistic communities by other academics. Future scholarly output can therefore utilise the findings offered within this thorough collection of articles and set them in their global, theoretical context.' -Language Policy, James Hawkey
