Why should we study language? How do the ways in which we communicate define our identities? And how is this all changing in the digital world? Since 1993, many have turned to Language, Culture, and Society for answers to questions like those above because of its comprehensive coverage of all critical aspects of linguistic anthropology. This seventh edition carries on the legacy while addressing some of the newer pressing and exciting challenges of the 21st century, such as issues of language and power, language ideology, and linguistic diasporas. Chapters on gender, race, and class also examine how language helps create-and is created by-identity. New to this edition are enhanced and updated pedagogical features, such as learning objectives, updated resources for continued learning, and the inclusion of a glossary. There is also an expanded discussion of communication online and of social media outlets and how that universe is changing how we interact. The discussion on race and ethnicity has also been expanded to include Latin- and Asian-American English vernacular.

Ein neues Jahrtausend hat begonnen, das Jahrtausend der großen politischen Einheiten. Amerika gegen China, Indien gegen die muslimische Welt, Russland gegen den Westen. Globale Supermächte treffen aufeinander und versuchen ihre Interessen und kulturellen Vorstellungen durchzusetzen oder aber zu verteidigen. In diesem Kampf der Giganten steht das heutige Europa zerstritten und uneins da. Diejenigen, die sich selbst „gute Europäer" nennen, geben dafür oft den europäischen Nationalstaaten die Schuld. Denn diese wehren sich immer wieder gegen eine weitere Zentralisierung der Europäischen Union und stehen damit dem Wunsch vieler EU-Bürokraten nach einem europäischen Zentralstaat im Wege. In seinem Buch „Europa der Vaterländer" wirft Markus Willinger genau diesen EU-Bürokraten Kurzsichtigkeit und Einfallslosigkeit vor. Er erklärt, dass ein europäischer Staat angesichts der kulturellen, sprachlichen und wirtschaftlichen Vielfalt Europas weder möglich noch wünschenswert sei. Anstatt Staatsmodelle aus dem Ausland zu übernehmen, müssten die Europäer aufgrund ihrer Einzigartigkeit eine ganz eigene Form des Zusammenlebens finden. Die Europäische Union verwirft Willinger als ein gescheitertes Modell, das der Einheit Europas nicht nützt, sondern dieser sogar schadet. Dem Autor zufolge muss die Europäische Union so schnell wie möglich aufgelöst und durch einen Staatenbund freier, europäischer Nationalstaaten, also durch ein Europa der Vaterländer, ersetzt werden. In 32 scharfen Kapiteln erklärt Willinger wie ein solches Europa aussehen könnte, und wie es im Gegensatz zur heutigen EU oder eines europäischen Staates organisiert wäre. Dabei ist dieses Buch keineswegs eine trockene Analyse. Aus jedem Wort und jedem Satz spricht die Leidenschaft des Autors und seine Liebe zu dem, was er das wahre Europa nennt. Willinger kritisiert die EU-Bürokraten und ihr politisches Scheitern rücksichtslos und zögert dabei nicht auch harte Worte zu gebrauchen. Er beschränkt sich dabei aber jedoch nicht auf simple Kritik, sondern erstellt selbst die Leitlinien für ein neues Europa. Markus Willinger, geboren 1992, studierte Politikwissenschaft und Geschichte. Er ist Mitarbeiter beim international tätigen Verlag Arktos Media und veröffentliche im Jahr 2013 sein politisches Manifest „Die identitäre Generation", welches bislang in 6 Sprachen übersetzt wurde.
