The 2nd edition of The Handbook of Discourse Analysis boasts chapters by major figures (e.g. Gumperz, Holmes, Johnstone, Labov, Lakoff, Schegloff, Ochs, Shuy, Tannen, van Dijk, Wodak) and its reconfiguration of chapters captures important scholarly trends in discourse analytic research and reflects a fairly substantive reconceptualization of the field.
Susan Ehrlich, Journal of Sociolinguistics, 2016

As Discourse Analysis expands and diversifies, we need scholarship that maintains the coherence of the field, centered on socially aware linguistic theorizing. We also need scholarship which is able to shape new issues, emphases, and applications. The second edition of this Handbook is a landmark achievement in both these regards. Two volumes of updated and original chapters by leading contributors provide an outstanding, up-to-date resource, including several real gems by founding figures in Discourse Analysis that should be consulted by researchers and students alike.
Nikolas Coupland, University of Copenhagen and Cardiff University

There are several handbooks of Discourse Analysis available today - this two-volume collection is the most comprehensive and intellectually stimulating of them all. Updated throughout to reflect the very latest research across a wide range of theoretical and analytic approaches, The Handbook of Discourse Analysis is accessible to undergraduates and yet represents a state-of-the-art resource for graduate students and academics alike. Highly recommended.
John E. Richardson, Loughborough University

The second edition of the highly successful Handbook of Discourse Analysis has been thoroughly updated to reflect the very latest research to have developed since the publication of the first edition in 2001. Updates include new research conducted in all areas covered by the original 41 chapters - for example, the exploration of recent theoretical paradigms - as well as expanded and enriched existing frameworks. Moreover, new types of discourse have appeared with the invention and adoption of new technologies.

In addition to updating chapters that appeared in the original edition, the second edition includes 20 entirely new chapters that highlight emerging trends and areas of research. The result is a cutting-edge resource, written and edited by leading researchers in their respective fields, which provides an elegant and state-of-the-art overview of the field. The two-volume handbook delivers a vital resource for scholars and students in discourse studies and related fields.
