Excellently prepared set of essays pertaining to the key (and some not so key, but extra-interesting!) issues surrounding language and gender identities in linguistics.

It covers a wide range of material and is a must-have for any students of linguistics at an undergraduate level - since ultimately gender and identity linguistics were some of the biggest engines for further research into linguistics - and this book compiles essays from the first few important touchstones, to extremely modern works in varied contexts. The studies contained in the book are well written and accessible for students, with lots of references out to other studies allowing it to stand suitably as a gateway book, but also one that does not scrimp on packing in good, comprehensive studies.

Really, if you study linguistics in relation to identity, (or in a more general sense post modern constructions of identity) I cannot emphasise the utility of this book.

I am a student at university and found that provided a great understanding of criticism from a variety of different people, but also provided insight into the deeper issues surrounding Gender. It also provided as a great introduction to many key concepts such as "feminism", "masculinity" and showed that we are inescapable with relation to media and advertising. A great book!

Quite satisfied, despite a line of folding on the cover, every page is white and clean, with no marks or lines, just like a new book.
