                       &  SOCIETY
           Fifteenth call for book reviewers
           Issued December 1997
          (Previous list issued May 1997)
Discourse and Society   is a journal founded in July
1990, editor Teun van Dijk, University of Amsterdam;
publisher: Sage. It has attracted over 750 subscribers,
and is central to the rapidly expanding field of
discourse analysis.
Since January 1991 the journal has appeared four times
yearly, and reviewed about thirty-three books each year.
The titles listed below are available for
review either as single volumes or jointly.  Joint
reviews are encouraged wherever appropriate.
On receiving a book you will be asked to judge its
relevance to Discourse and Society.  There are three
categories to choose from:

     1. Books apparently central to the concerns of
     Discourse and Society.

     2. Books which address an area to which discourse
     analysis has contributed. If having requested such a
     book, you find it not relevant to the journal's
     interests, please report this to the review editor
     who may permit you to keep the title without review.

     3. Books which appear marginal to the concerns of
     Discourse and Society. You may request these titles
     on the basis that if they are  relevant to the
     journal's interests you will review them but if not,
     you will keep them without review.
