It is natural for people to make the distinction between in-group (Us) and out-group members (Others). What is it that brings people together, or keeps them apart? Ethnicity, nationality, professional expertise or life style? And, above all, what is the role of language in communicating solidarity and detachment?
The papers in this volume look at the various cognitive, social, and linguistic aspects of how social identities are constructed, foregrounded and redefined in interaction. Concepts and methodologies are taken from studies in language variation and change, multilingualism, conversation analysis, genre analysis, sociolinguistics, critical discourse analysis, as well as translation studies and applied linguistics. A wide range of languages is brought into focus in a variety of situational, social and discursive environments. The book is addressed to scholars and students of linguistics and related areas of social communication studies.

Table of Contents
“With its well-argued discussions, mostly supported by empirical research, Duszak's Us and Others deserves a place on the shelves of all sociolinguists and other social scientists interested in identity research.”
“This excellent book will be a valuable resource for academics and other people interested in the processes involved in the construction of individual and group identities, in the linguistic 'clues' to underlying ideological categorizations, or in the consequences of 'us/you/them' divisions and revisions. I believe that it would be appropriately placed not only in academic libraries but also in those that serve the general public.”
“This collection provides an original and welcome take on an important area within discourse studies, as well as cultural studies and anthropology generally.”
“The strength of the book lies in the variety of insights into the problem it takes up. The twenty-two papers offer different approaches related to social inclusion and exclusion and exemplify them with different kinds of data taken from social and linguistic contexts.”
