The American Bilingual Tradition

by Heinz Kloss
New Introduction by Reynaldo F. Macías and Terrence G. Wiley

Paperback. 496 pages. $22.95
ISBN 1-887744-02-9

This reprint edition of The American Bilingual Tradition offers a valuable scholarly contribution to the current debate over bilingualism and language diversity in the United States. Written by an eminent European language historian, it chalenges widespread myths about alleged differences between recent immigrants to the United States and those of past generations.

A new introduction by Reynaldo Macías and Terrence Wiley positions Kloss's work by highlighting his analysis of the history of language policy in the United States, which generaly fostered tolerance and respect for minority language rights. The American Bilingual Tradition offers a refreshing perspective that will be valued by both serious students of the history of language policy and the general public.
