Rodney H. Jones is Associate Professor of English at City University of Hong Kong.Review:
‘Rodney Jones forcefully argues for "opening up the circumference" of studies of health and risk communication. The resulting multidimensional work is a tour de force that belongs on the must-read list of every applied discourse analyst who explores everyday talk and social action in relation to health. Jones' command and synthesis of a wide range of relevant discourse approaches and literatures is simply breathtaking. Kudos!’
Heidi E. Hamilton, Georgetown University, USA
‘Rodney Jones' new book offers brilliant and accessible analyses of health risk as an increasingly complex and pervasive concern affecting our social life. Bringing together a wide range of theoretical and methodological influences, Jones navigates the field of health communication with great dexterity, providing the specialist applied linguist, the public health scholar, and anyone else interested in health care communication much food for thought.’
Rick Iedema, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia
