Point de vue comparatif sur les politiques linguistiques au Canada

Un peu de pub pour un ouvrage auquel j’ai collaboré :
Language issues have been – and promise to continue to be – at the heart of national political life in Can­ada. The results of governmental language policy play a crucial role in determining the unity of the coun­try. However, despite its importance, language policy is often difficult to understand because it is part of a complicated political terrain where numerous policies intersect. Canadian Language Polices in Comparative Perspective presents a long-required assessment of the field and utilizes a widely recognized comparative method that makes this volume the most systematic study of language issues available.

Capturing the dynamism of Canadian language policies, the essays in this volume analyze and compare the effects, histories, and features of language policies as they have been enacted and implemented by Canadian provincial and federal governments. The contributors' comparisons reveal significant domestic and interna­tional implications for language policy. An important study of a social and political issue that has immediate lo­cal, national, and international consequences, Canadian Language Policies in Comparative Perspective assem­bles knowledgeable authorities on language policy to provide a comprehensive synthesis of its consequences.
