Language, Society and State : From Colonization to Globalization in Taiwan (Hardcover) (Gareth Price)
About this item
Using Taiwan as a case study, this book constructs an innovative theory of a political sociology of language. Through documentary and ethnographic data and a comparative-historical method the book illustrates how language mediates interactions between society and the state and becomes politicized as a resu how language, politics and power are intertwined processes; and how these processes are not isolated in institutions but socially embedded.
