By some counts, only 600 of the 6000 or so languages in the world are safe from the threat of extinction. A leading commentator and popular writer on language issues, David Crystal asks the fundamental question, Why is language death so important?, reviews the reasons for the current crisis, and investigates what is being done to reduce its impact. The book contains not only intelligent argument, but moving descriptions of the decline and demise of particular languages, and practical advice for anyone interested in pursuing the subject further.

Nato e cresciuto tra i vicoli stretti e bui della città di Ness, è sempre riuscito a cavarsela, grazie alla sua furbizia e a un innato talento per arrampicarsi sui muri. Il ragazzo però ha un grosso debito con il capo della confraternita di ladri e criminali che imperversa a Ness, e quindi, quando due misteriose figure lo agganciano, proponendogli un affare che gli permetterà di procurarsi in un colpo solo tutto il denaro di cui ha bisogno, non esita a cogliere al volo l’occasione. Solo dopo aver accettato scopre di essere solo una pedina di un disegno più ampio: dovrà infatti rubare la corona del signore di Ness, custodita in una torre piena di insidie e sorvegliata da centinaia di guardie. Una missione molto pericolosa, che potrebbe cambiare per sempre non solo il suo destino, ma anche le sorti del regno…
