Multilingualism in China

on

Multilingualism in China – Minglang Zhou’s highly erudite and well-researched volume on the policies concerning writing reforms for China s minorities since 1949 provides an original and well-reasoned summary of a complex process.

It documents how different script reforms meet dramatically different fates according to local preferences, history, cross-border ties, and the vitality of previously-used scripts. In a style accessible to both undergraduate and graduate students, Zhou’s book is of interest to language planners, sinologists, applied linguists, writing theorists, and ethnologists. “
