'This book is as rich and varied a guide to the latest developments in discourse analysis as you are likely to find. The book has an all-encompassing coverage, a genuinely international cast list of contributors, numerous new and subtly inflected approaches to the topic and embraces a range of methods of doing discourse analysis in both theory and practice. It is clearly written, consistently authoritative and obviously edited with care and wisdom. It is a book that brilliantly underlines how central and fundamental discourse analysis is to so many fields of enquiry.' -- Professor Ronald Carter, School of English Studies, University of Nottingham, UK

A rich all-encompassing textbook which succeeds in covering all concepts, movements, and approaches related to discourse in one invaluable volume ... The almost symmetrical structure of the two parts of the book reflects the meticulous choices editors have made to put this volume in its current state. The internal organization of the chapters makes them easy to read and understand ... Overall, this volume is an invaluable reference for researchers interested in discourse analysis. The chapters are not only carefully chosen and accurately organized, but they are also written by experienced scholars. The content, clarity, logical organization, and expert guidance provided in this volume make it truly the best 'companion' to discourse analysts of all backgrounds. -- Inas Youssef Mahfouz Linguist List 'This book is as rich and varied a guide to the latest developments in discourse analysis as you are likely to find.

The pellucid organization of this collection provides readers with a wealth of information on the history, theory, methodology and current trends of discourse research. One of the book's outstanding features is the transparency of connections between the writings of various authors, which serves to fuse the collection into a coherent whole and to assist readers in recognizing and internalizing these connections. -- Jixian Pang and Jun Chen, School of International Studies, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, P.R. China Discourse Studies The Bloomsbury Companion to Discourse Analysis, edited by Ken Hyland and Brian Paltridge, is a state-of-the art one-volume resource for advanced students and academics. It is a comprehensive and well-structured reference source for research in contemporary discourse studies. The twenty-one chapters are written by leading experts in the field, providing readers with an authoritative overview of key terms, methods, and current research topics and directions, at the same time giving practical advice for advanced study in the area. The Year's Work in English Studies Those interested in examining the biblical writings from a sociological perspective would benefit from Ruth Wodak's essay on Critical Discourse Analysis. This discipline presupposes that the surface level of a discourse must not be taken at face value. It must be challenged thinking in order to explain and change social phenomena. ... Anyone interested in discourse analysis of any kind should purchase this work as a reference.
