Languages are not only tools of communication, they also reflect a view of the world. Languages are vehicles of value systems and cultural expressions and are an essential component of the living heritage of humanity. Yet, many of them are in danger of disappearing.
UNESCO’s Atlas of the World’s Languages in Danger tries to raise awareness on language endangerment.
This third edition has been completely revised and expanded to include new series of maps and new points of view.
Also available in the Memory of Peoples series
