    For those interested not just in linguistics, but in the politics of language, this book is like Christmas. It's technical, yes, in that it goes into the particulars of languages and language groups; it's also a great bird's-eye view of the cultural and political shifts in each host region, so that it also reads like a language-based cultural history of the world. Highly recommended. For those interested not just in linguistics, but in the politics of language, this book is like Christmas.
