The titles in the series "Language, Discourse, Society" range across the disciplines from linguistics to biology, from literary criticism to law, combining vigorous scholarship and theoretical analysis at the service of a broad political engagement. This 25th anniversary reader brings together a group of thinkers from both sides of the Atlantic with an introductory overview from the editors which considers the development of theory and scholarship since 1980.
