The Languages of the Former Soviet Republics describes the evolution of each of the languages of the 14 non-Russian Soviet republics paying particular attention to periods of Russification during the Tsarist and Soviet eras. Non-linguistic in content, Gary C. Fouse delves into languages that other authors frequently overlook or ignore, and documents first hand accounts of native-speakers who describe their experiences growing up in a bilingual environment. Targeted toward those interested in the former Soviet Union or language in general, this book will be a tremendous resource for professors and students of Sociolinguistics and Soviet Studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...the Languages of the Former Soviet Republics is a valuable resource... * Slavic and East European Journal *
Well organized and engagingly written, this first post-Soviet treatment of the major literary languages of the Commonwealth of Independent States provides a concise, informative overview of the literary and demographic history of all the titular languages of the former Soviet Republics...Particularly excellent are the author's account of how each language fared as a medium of publication and education vis-a-vis Russian during the Soviet period and his summation of sociolinguistic changes that have accrued in the wake of the Soviet collapse. This excellent, accessible, and multifaceted reference to the major peoples of the region as well as to their languages is highly recommended for any library supporting the study of Russian language and literature. * CHOICE *
