The second edition of this classic work offers a valuable scholarly contribution to the current debate over language diversity and bilingualism in the United States. Written by an eminent European language historian, it challenges widespread myths about differences between recent immigrants to the United States and those of past generations. A new introduction by Reynaldo Macías and Terrence Wiley highlights and contextualizes Kloss’s work. The American Bilingual Tradition offers a refreshing perspective that will be valued by anyone with an interest in the history of language policy.
