An important feature of this book on Language, Identity and Immigration is its broad representation of different disciplines, scholars, research methodologies and international perspectives. Such variation and plurality further enhance the overall complexity of global migration, while focusing on the central role of language in the identity crises caused by immigration. The volume consists of five different parts with the first two being devoted to the process of acculturation, the next two to processes of language maintenance and developing bilingualism, and the last focusing on the larger social context. The sixteen articles included in the book are mostly based on presentations given at the international conference on Immigration, Language Acquisition and Patterns of Social Integration, held at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in the summer of 1994, under the auspices of the NCJW Research Institute for Innovation in Education.
