Three processes which have greatly affected European political development since 1945 are: a slow but steady progress towards abolition of political and economic frontiers; a tendency for the old nation-states to fracture, with the communities of which they were composed demanding some devolution of power, autonomy or even full independence; and migration on mass scale. Much has been written about these processes without the linguistic instability always considered. This book investigates how the linguistic dimension might affect European integration.
