Language and Gender A Reader Press Reviews

Overall, this new edition is successful. Readers familiar with the original version will hopefully find the changes warranted and in line with the goals outlined by the authors in their introduction. It remains a highly useful text for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in language and gender and for anyone interested in the historical and current theoretical and methodological approaches to research on gender and language.
