Is language one of the main components of national identity? How does it define one's national identity? Does its role change for each nation? These are the crucial questions that are explored in this volume, which describes the Nation-Identity dyad through the prism of language. The centuries-old theory on the role language plays in shaping national identity is discussed here in a new perspective appropriate to the 21st century. The analysis is provided from various points of view, and details changes in the relationship between these three elements (language, nation, and identity) in different historical, social and linguistic contexts. The book looks at several different languages in its analysis, such as English, Portuguese, French, Spanish and Italian. It brings together a wide variety of approaches to the linguistic educational system in a multilingual Africa and in countries with a rich migration history, like Australia and United States. It also discusses the role literature and textbooks play in shaping the sense of national belonging. The answers to the central questions described above are both highly individual and very general, but will, no doubt, stimulate the reader's reflection about 'me' and the 'other'.

Dedicato alla madre e rivolto alle giovani donne, nella speranza che il Risorgimento politico fosse anche un risorgimento femminile, è lo scritto La donna e i suoi rapporti sociali, pubblicato nel 1864. Convinta repubblicana, non esita a rimproverare a Mazzini e ai suoi seguaci l'idea conservatrice che il posto della donna stia soltanto nella famiglia: «non dite più che la donna è fatta per la famiglia, che nella famiglia è il suo regno e il suo impero! Le son queste vacue declamazioni come mille altre di simil genere! Ella esiste nella famiglia, nella città, in faccia ai pesi e ai doveri; di questi all'infuori, ella non esiste in nessun luogo». Il presente eBook ricalca e rinforza i temi già sviluppati in La Donna e i suoi Rapporti Sociali.
