About this book

Introduction

This examines a significant aspect of contemporary social life: cultural identities and our linguistic means of constructing them. It combines a theoretical re-assessment of processes of identification with case studies of the discourses of three-generation families living in split-border communities along the former 'Iron Curtain'.
