When I start it with `emacs -q`, region-highlighting is off; try using

  M-x transient-mark-mode

to switch it on.  If that works, put 

 (setq transient-mark-mode t)

in your .emacs file and try again.  (My problem was that something
mysterious in my .emacs file was interfering with transient-mark-mode,
which was turned on in that file.)
