Editorial Reviews

Review

“Overall, this new edition is successful. Readers familiar with the original version will hopefully find the changes warranted and in line with the goals outlined by the authors in their introduction. It remains a highly useful text for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in language and gender and for
anyone interested in the historical and current theoretical and methodological approaches to research on gender and language.”  (Linguist, 27 August 2012)

Review

"Language and Gender has been the standard bearer for the field for over a decade.  This exciting new edition provides fully updated coverage, using globally oriented data to present both the history of language and gender research and its contemporary theoretical debates.   A must-have for anyone interested in the field."
Robin Queen, University of Michigan

 "Coates and Pichler have gifted the field with this updated edition . . .. The volume, now encompassing a broader range of cultural contexts and theoretical issues, retains  foundational texts that made the original indispensable and incorporates several more recent classics. Appropriate for novices and experts alike, this book faithfully represents the current state of language and gender scholarship while reviewing its past and pointing toward a rich future.
Robert Podesva, Georgetown University

 "This stimulating collection of articles covers every aspect of language and gender research and provides a satisfying sense of the development of ideas over the decades, as well as valuable insights into current debates in this vibrant research area."    
Janet Holmes, Victoria University of Wellington

This book is incredible. It has a lot of material that you can apply into your life. It has a lot of psychology as well. It's amazing how you can see everything that they mention is happening in real life. I highly recommend.

Format: Paperback
Holy cow! For a paperback book, it weighs a ton!! Definitely not a book you want to try and hold while you read unless you're also trying to significantly increase hand and lower arm strength.

This book would be much improved if it were in e-book format.
