Arabic Sociolinguistics is to my knowledge the only up-to-date, comprehensive manual on the whole subject. The book is written in a pleasingly informal style, and is full of acute and often personal observations on the subtle ways in which language and society interact in the Arabic-speaking world. It should be of great benefit both to the student of Arabic and the general linguist with no knowledge of Arabic.
With a readable style, the book addresses the very complex diglossic situation in the Arab world with concrete examples resulting from interesting case studies that challenge the findings of recent studies on different sociolinguistic issues We highly recommend this book to all readers who wish to gain a better understanding of Arabic and the Arab world. McCreary, University of Georgia, Journal of Sociolinguistics For those interested in the Arab situation from a sociolinguistic point of view, it seems indispensable.
