“Because of its timely focus on the evolution of discourse studies in contemporary China, this book is a much welcomed addition to the existing literature on discourse and communication research. ... presents a ground-breaking theoretical and practical model which argues convincingly on the benefits of a non-Western paradigm for discourse studies. ... an invaluable resource that will appeal not only to scholars of Chinese culture, but also to lay readers interested in discourse analysis, media studies, and intercultural communication.” (Yanhua Cheng, Journal of Asian Pacific Communication, Vol. 27 (1), 2017)“Chinese Discourse Studies is organized in such a way that each chapter can also be read individually. ... Shi-xu’s Chinese Discourse Studies is an original contribution to the understanding of the culture/discourse nexus. Shi-xu skilfully employs a complicated academic perspective to problematize the very basic questions of discourse and culture. Moreover, necessarily complex, the theoretically eclectic approach, which melds together perspectives from the areas of culture, discourse, linguistics, communication and philosophy, remains accessible to readers new to such fields.” (Dalia Gavriely-Nuri, Discourse Studies, Vol. 18 (4), August, 2016)
