(GARDNER, Nick). Basque in Education in the Basque Autonomous Community. Vitoria-Gasteiz : Eusko Jaurlaritzaren Argitalpen Zerbitzu Nagusia, Servicio Central de Publicaciones del Gobierno Vasco, 2000. Pp [1]-99,(1). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated olive brown card covers. “Basque has been marginally present in education for well over a century but the Spanish constitution of1978 and subsequent legislation have provided the opportunity for a remark able expansion in the use of Basque in education, especially under the regional government of the Basque Autonomous Community (Spain). This expansion has aroused the interest of academics and minority language loyalists worldwide. As a result, since its inception at the beginning of the nineteen eighties, the Department of Education, Universities and Research of the BasqueGovernment has received numerous requests for information on the implantat ion of Basque alongside Spanish in the local education system. This book gathers together the answers to the most common questions, at the same time setting them in the broader context of the ongoing language planning initiative for Basque, which can be traced as far back as the fifties.” (from the back cover).
