At War with Diversity: US Language Policy in an Age of Anxiety

Front Cover
Multilingual Matters, 2000 - Education - 143 pages
Bilingualism is a reality that many Americans still find difficult to accept; hence the prominence of English-only activism in U.S. politics. This collection of essays analyzes the sources of the anti-bilingual movement, its changing directions, and its impact on education policy. The book also explores efforts to resist the English-only trend, including projects to revitalize native American languages.
