'An outstanding case-study for all those interested in problems of language and majority and minority identity in the era of globalisation' - Rachel Killick in Journal of French Language Studies

'The book has many strengths, including the clarity of its structure and presentation, the cognency of its argumentation, the relevance of its analyses to the ongoing development of language planning as a discipline and, most important, its significant contribution to the understanding of the complex sociolinguistic reality of contemporary Quebec.' - Maeve Conrick in Language in Society

'...a concise yet clear overview not only of the Quebec situation as a particular case, but also of the general theoretical concepts of identity and citizenship that play a key role in the Quebec nation-building process. ...excellent analysis of the young Quebec Nation and the challenges it faces, bound to become indispensable to many a student, scholar or non-expert interested in the Quebec case...' - The Linguist List
