A considered look at the current state of the Irish language in the wider context of endangered languages. Our understanding of the particular situation of Irish is greatly enhanced by the world, linguistic and ecological perspectives which the author brings to the subject. The text appears first in the English language (some 50 pages) and is followed by the Irish-language version of the book (another c.50 pages), for those who wish to read that.
