'Maintaining Minority Languages in Transnational Contexts...offers a thorough and accessible overview of language policy and planning isssues in Australia and Europe. Its nine entries are engaging and well-written. Equally important, consistent placement of a common set of concerns against larger sociological, cultural and political context bring this volume...together into a coherent whole.' - Christof Demont-Henrich, Journal of Sociolinguistics

'Pauwels, Winter, and Lo Bianco have tackled a very large issue facing present circumstances in Europe, Australia, and many other countries. Much of what they describe and include in these chapters can be applied to other national extenuating circumstances.
They offer a powerful perspective on how minority languages must be supported and recognized.' - Esther Ra, Current Issues in Language Planning
