From the reviews:
"Orman's book constitutes an important contribution to the field. It both raises questions of concern to anyone interested in language planning and language policy studies, and provides an outstanding overview of the complex and paradoxical South African situation." (Timothy Reagan, Language Problems & Language Planning, 33:3,2009)"This volume is part of a series aimed at scholars ... as well as educational and applied linguistics and sociolinguistics. ... provides an overview of the relationship between national identity and language, illustrating how this has manifested itself in the new South Africa. ... It will be of interest especially to those involved in language planning and policy, but also those interested in the interplay of identity and language in multilingual societies, and finally to anyone interested in the linguistic future of this country." (Kirsten Colquhoun, Linguist List, December, 2009)
