"The intended readership of the book is broad, and may include sociolinguists, diachronic linguistics researchers, general language researchers, and anyone who shows an interest in investigations into language problems, language policy, and language planning. ... the book remains a great contribution to the area of language policy and language planning and deserves my wholehearted recommendation." (Haoda Feng, Language in Society, Vol. 48 (2), April, 2019)
