Review Excerpt

"The aim of Language, Emotion, and Politics in South India is to show how the specific history of Telugu-language politics can shed new light on general questions of importance to researchers in a variety of fields who are concerned to understand 'the processes that have led speakers of particular languages to see themselves as having a separate history, literature, politics, and identity' (p.11)."
