Summary
Focuses on the endangering effects of language-ideological processes. This book looks at the challenges imposed by globalization and super-diversity on the nation state and its language situations and ideologies, and demonstrates how many of its problems rise from the tension between late-modern diversity and the (pre-)modernist responses to it.

Summary expansion
This volume presents studies that provide detailed and actual descriptions of 'endangering' situations of multilingualism. Theoretically, it documents language-ideological processes of power and their effects on the real life-chances of multilingual subjects. In that sense, it provides addenda to existing scholarship on language endangerment, language policy and language rights. The empirical data in most studies comes from Finland, a country where a robust self-perception of monolingualism and cultural homogeneity obscures a number of hidden forms of problematic multilingualism. Two chapters extend the discussion to other North European contexts. The book captures these problems in terms of the tension between late-modern forms of social, cultural and linguistic diversity and responses to this diversity which range from modernist reactions emphasizing order, purity and normality, to pre-modernist responses which recycle the late 19th century national romantic notions of 'one language, one nation'. Although most of the chapters discuss issues of multilingualism in a north European contexts, this book is of interest to international audiences, mainly because the dangers of multilingualism it discusses are not foreign to other contexts of the world facing globalization and superdiversity and the challenges they pose on the nation state and its language situations and ideologies
