Anthology of Apologists and Detractors of the Basque Language

This comprehensive anthology presents the most important works on the Basque Language from the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries, making many hard to translate or rare, inaccessible works available to political linguists, scholars of minority language studies, and anyone interested in language and identity. Part I considers the debate about the excellence of the Basque Language during the Foral Era, from 1545-1876. Topics include the Basque mythical construct, Euskara and the vernacular languages of the Renaissance, nineteenth century paradoxes concerning the Basque Language, the fall of the Foral system, and more. Part II comprises the texts themselves.
