Language and Power: A Resource Book for Students
Routledge English Language Introductions cover core areas of language study and are one-stop resources for students.
Assuming no prior knowledge, books in the series offer an accessible overview of the subject, with activities, study questions, sample analyses, commentaries and key readings – all in the same volume. The innovative and flexible ‘two-dimensional’ structure is built around four sections – introduction, development, exploration and extension – which offer self-contained stages for study. Each topic can also be read across these sections, enabling the reader to build gradually on the knowledge gained.

I read this for uni and as an academic book I found it easy to read and follow and it was interesting. For a text book 5/5 but I wouldn't necessarily have read it just for fun. Good place to start if you have an interest in the English language Read full review
