"This book addresses a very important subject: the relationship of bilingual education to power politics in the US from 1880 to the present. Of particular interest is discussion of the impact of Reagan appointees in the Department of Education on bilingual programs ... no other book has attempted to link language to politics in the US in as explicit a manner. Especially for those not familiar with the history of language relations in the US, it provides an introduction to the subject. . . ." Choice
