This work aims to provide the most comprehensive bibliography in the domain of Sociolinguistics and in the field of language planning. The 640-page publication gives access to a large percentage of the published literature via a sophisticated thesaurus. As the title indicates, Africa, and specifically southern Africa, is covered in great detail. Sources on the history and development of the languages of Namibia and Zimbabwe have been included. Apart from sources on the languages of Africa, the bibliography also offers a comprehensive overview on topics such as language conflict, language decline, language development, and language rights, as well as a section on translations and interpreting. The categorisation of sources is intended to stimulate researchers and postgraduate students, and this makes the bibliography an indispensable tool for librarians and senior academics.
