From the Back Cover:

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the ninth edition's objective remains the same - to bring together exciting readings that explore the various ways language and American society are interconnected - while reflecting on the new and fascinating language issues that exist in our culture today. The provocative selections, organized around ten major language areas, demonstrate the subtle complexities and richness of English. They also invite students to debate current social and cultural issues that are inseparable from language. Chapter themes reflect the wide spectrum of language issues affecting our contemporary culture. Rhetorical features encourage critical thinking and reflection. Each assignment is preceded by a headnote containing useful thematic and biographical information. For anyone interested in the connection between language and society.
