Kampuchea: the Triumph of English and the Defeat of French

Language Choice in a Nation Under Transition by Thomas Clayton:

Language Choice in a Nation under Transition charts the spread of English into Cambodia and the French efforts to contest this spread in favor of their own language through an analysis of the country's recent history. This book proposes a synthesis of the national-functional and international-critical perspectives. This synthesis emerges from the Cambodian experience and thus adheres to Joshua Fishman's admonition that theory reflect the "sharp bite of local detail and unique historical experience."
