Summary "Bilingualism is a reality that many Americans still find difficult to accept; hence the prominence of English-only activism in US politics. This collection of essays analyzes the sources of the anti-bilingual movement, its changing directions, and its impact on education policy. The book also explores efforts to resist the English-only trend, including projects to revitalize Native American languages." --Book Jacket
