Language Rights in French Canada

Synopsis

"Are far-reaching language rights defensible in a liberal society? Language Rights in French Canada explores this question in the context of a political culture long hostile to Quebec's language laws, and increasingly resistant to official bilingualism across Canada. It argues for the moral validity of collective goals that aim to preserve and promote the French-Canadian identity in and outside of Quebec. This book makes a compelling case for recognizing strong language rights as a matter of justice." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
