Theoretically rich, the text focuses on the influence and effects of Ujamaa ideology on the way in which Swahili was formed, treated, discussed, and implemented in a postcolonial society evolving toward socialism. It particularly focuses on influential events between 1967 and 1995. The volume is a sociolinguistic study merging macro- and micro-sociolinguistic approaches, as well as historiographic and political-analytic research. It makes a substantial contribution to the study of African political ideologies and to research on the continuity between colonial and postcolnial language policies, and it engages with the dispersed nature of language policy and its formation by a number of critical social actors.

This second edition includes a new chapter on enregistering the nation and updates the discussion on code-switching and language policies and ideologies.
