Although much has been written about discourse analysis in recent years, little of it has been intelligible to the average undergraduate or graduate student.

    schema:description ""Potter and Wetherell have genuinely presented us with a different way of working in social psychology. The book's clarity means that it has the power to influence a lot of people ill-at-ease with traditional social psychology but unimpressed with other alternatives to offer. It could rescue social psychology from the sterility of the laboratory and its traditional mentalism."--Times Higher Education Supplement."@en ;
    schema:description "Although much has been written about discourse analysis in recent years, little of it has been intelligible to the average undergraduate or graduate student. It has become a field in which terminological confusions abound and a bewildering variety of theoretical perspectives compete. Discourse and Social Psychology is the first systematic and easily understood introduction to the theory and application of discourse analysis within the field of social psychology. Beginning with an insightful discussion of the theoretical roots of discourse analysis in linguistic philosophy, ethnomethodology, and semiotics, the authors continue by exploring those concepts which are at the heart of the study of social psychology: rules, accounts, the self, and social representations. Concluding chapters not only tackle some of the broader and more controversial issues, but also offer suggestions as to the direction future research should take. In addition, the authors provide an exhaustive bibliography which will help acquaint students with all the relevant literature in the field. "A provocative little text, that is pitched at the advanced student of social psychology. ... Concrete observations, evolving definitions, changing circumstances, and dynamic variability, are central ideas to their refreshing approaches in current social psychology. An extensive bibliography supplements this text."--Choice."@en ;
    schema:description ""An invigorating breath of fresh air--clear, innovative, and compelling. With bold theoretical vision and a range of creative research strategies, the volume brings social psychologists into catalytic connection with communication specialists, micro-sociologists, linguists, and philosophers of social science. A significant step toward a post-modern psychology."--Kenneth J. Gergen, Swarthmore College."@en ;

    schema:description ""This book represents a lucid and entertaining introduction to the study of language and discourse. The authors analyze social texts of all kinds and offer interesting exemplars to illustrate important concepts and theoretical ideas. Although I disagree with the authors' critique of the neo-positivist research tradition, I still found the book provocative."--Mary Anne Fitzpatrick, University of Wisconsin."@en ;
