Summary:
Annotation

'Good to Talk? demonstrates powerfully why it is increasingly not so good to talk. Deborah Cameron details how talk is increasingly -stylized-, codified, standardized, and the subject of surveillance. Just as Michel Foucault demonstrated in the case of sex in the Victorian era, Cameron shows that there is entirely too much talk about talk' - George Ritzer, University of Maryland.
