Editorial Reviews

"As in Genre Analysis, Swales skilfully blends extensive knowledge in this area with detailed examples drawn from a variety of sources, including the Michigan Corpus of Academic Spoken English (MICASE). His writing is personal, honest, and humorous and fully captures the influence on the genres on the research world. It offers an important and rich discussion of the complexities involved in approaching and thinking about research genres." The Canadian Modern Language Review
