Description

The first critical ethnography of bilingual education in Japan. Based on fieldwork at five different schools, this examines the role of schools in the unequal distribution of bilingualism as cultural capital. It argues that schooling gives children unequal access to bilingualism thus socializing them into different futures.

'Language and Education in Japan makes a welcome contribution both to

critical studies of language education, and specifically to understanding

bilingualism in Japan. I recommend it to scholars interested in applied

linguistics, language education, and contemporary Japan.'

- Chad Nilep, Department of Linguistics, University of Colorado, USA (via Linguist List)
