"This volume is a path-breaking and much needed contribution to the study of the politics of language in modern Africa. Not only does it fill a critical gap in Africanist scholarship, its theoretically sophisticated and ethnographically rich essays directly engage some of the most pressing issues within both contemporary sociolinguistic theory and current debates about discourse of "development."
