The following points might help you in your decision whether or not to offer to review books in your field of expertise:


*Book reviewing is an important service to the academic community.

*Your review should normally reach me within three months of your receipt of the book. 

*The normal length of a book review in Discourse and Society is 1,000 words. Your review should provide an overview of the contents of the book as well as a well-argued judgment regarding its place in the field and its likely importance to the readers of Discourse and Society. Mere content summaries are undesirable.
