Languages at War : Policies and Practices of Language Contacts in Conflict Hardback
Edited by Hilary Footitt, Michael Kelly
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Languages at War series
Emphasising the significance of foreign languages at the centre of war and conflict, this book argues that 'foreignness' and foreign languages are key to our understanding of what happens in war.
Through case studies the book traces the role of languages in intelligence, military deployment, soldier/civilian meetings, occupation and peace building.
