Review "Students of CDA with an interest in multimodal analysis will find this book specially useful. Its broad treatment of discourse to include all aspects of semiotic activity, from the use of photos in news stories to the visual design of war monuments, provides concrete case studies that help introduce key concepts in the study of language and power." (Adam Hodges, Department of Linguistics, University of Colorado, USA ) "Language and Power offers an innovative and intriguing blend of socio-historical criticism and textual analysis. Applying critical discourse analysis to a range of discourse types the authors display its potential to the full with a series of thought-provoking and illuminating readings. All serious students of institutional discourse will want to engage with this book."
