Summary

Bilingualism is a reality that many Americans still find difficult to accept; hence the prominence of English-only activism in U.S. politics. This collection of essays analyzes the sources of the anti-bilingual movement, its changing directions, and its impact on education policy. The book also explores efforts to resist the English-only trend, including projects to revitalize native American languages.

Table of Contents

Anatomy of the English only movement
- boom to bust - official English in the 1990s
- endangered native American languages - what is to be done, and why?
- seven hypotheses on language loss
- the political paradox of bilingual education
- the proposition 227 campaign - a post mortem
