Based on a long-term ethnographic and historical study of French-language minority education in Ontario (Canada), Heller addresses a range of issues of interest to those concerned with minority languages, and in particular minority language education. These issues include the role of language ideologies, language practices (especially language choice), and policies regarding language and schooling, in the unfolding of ideas about identity and of relations of power.
