Reviews

“The author highlights how the use of Irish in these domains, which are deeply embedded in the complex processes of information exchange and human mobility that characterise globalization … . Moriarty’s book also contributes to current scholarly debates in language policy. … this is an area deserving of more conceptual effort in general in language policy.” (Kristof Savski, Journal of Language and Politics, Vol. 18 (3), 2019)
