‘Politics and the Theory of Language in the USSR 1917-1938’ provides ground-breaking research into the relationship between linguistic theory and politics during the first two decades of the USSR. This work introduces some of the era's most notable figures whose achievements have been largely overlooked in the West, and provides a thought-provoking discussion of the innovative approaches they developed. Some of these insights still have a progressive role to play in scholarship today.
