On the Offensive: Prejudice in Language Past and Present

By Karen Stollznow

Editors with an interest in linguistic discrimination and unconscious bias (so, probably all of us) may be interested in this examination of the many ways prejudice can show up in our words. Chapters cover topics such as gender identity, race and ethnicity, health and disability, and age, drawing on real-life case studies.
