Summary
"Owing to the history of Ireland the scholarly debate which surrounds its language is somewhat overheated and often disengaged. This book seeks to change that by providing a study of the Irish language with a focus on contemporary society." "The author explains the significance of the Irish language in terms of a complex nexus of society, power, politics and identity. Building upon the history of academic debates in the field, the book traverses this interesting subject via an examination of the language in the two polities of Ireland through to the importance of the language in a contemporary globalised setting."--Jacket.
