‘The Discourse Reader, Second Edition, is now the definitive source of readings on discourse analysis. It is the best balanced and integrated collection available, ranging from papers engaged with close analysis of language details to ones dealing with wider social and political themes.’ - James Paul Gee, University of Wisconsin, USA
'The Discourse Reader provides a unique and visionary collection of readings that define modern discourse studies as a field of diversity, complexity and versatility. It demonstrates the methodological and theoretical pluralism that characterizes the field, thus avoiding the trap of simplification, and it keeps its eyes open to innovative and new work. There is no such thing as a "classic" in discourse analysis, it is always work-in-progress. Precisely this insight makes this collection so valuable.' - Jan Blommaert, Institute of Education, University of London, UK
