This volume tracks the complex relationships between language, education and nation-building in Southeast Asia, focusing on how language policies have been used by states and governments as instruments of control, assimilation and empowerment. Leading scholars have contributed chapters each representing one of the countries in the region.

For sociolinguists, this volume provides an excellent overview of the dynamic and complex interactions between language education and nation building projects in a vastly multilingual part of the world. The insights and rich discussion in this volume are further evidence of the lively intellectual contribution that a community of like-minded professionals across this vast space is able to produce. (Joseph Lo Bianco, Journal of Sociolinguistics, Vol. 19, 2015)
