           Seventeenth call for book reviewers
           Issued February 1999
          (Previous list issued June 1998)
DISCOURSE AND SOCIETY ["D&S"]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. DISCOURSE STUDIES ["DST"] is a new journal,
edited by Teun van Dijk, launched by Sage in 1999.

The titles listed below are available for
review in either journal. You may offer to review a single
item or several items in a joint review. Joint
reviews are encouraged wherever appropriate.
On receiving a book you will be asked to judge its
relevance to D&S or DST. There are three
categories to choose from:

     1. Books apparently central to the concerns of
     D&S or DST.

     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
     D&S or DST. 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.
