Reviews

'I can think of no more enjoyable or clear or generally approachable introduction to the most vexing problems in the study of language than Deborah Cameron's Feminism and Linguistic Theory. It offers a sterling example of the illuminations which are made possible when questions of gender are firmly at the heart of serious critical enquiry.' - Jane Miller, Institute of Education, University of London
