'If you have never read a book on multimodality, or plan on reading just one book, Bateman's Multimodality and Genre is the book I'd recommend. It ably reviews the work that has revolutionised discourse analysis around the world and reconstructs its foundations in a way that is enabling multimodal discourse analysis to move forward on a principled footing.' - James Martin, University of Sydney, Australia 'Multimodality and Genre is an asset to any communication, language and media studies course. The ease with which he treats this highly complex matter and the exceptionally well devised structure of the book make it an ideal reading for advanced courses.' -- Marion G. Muller, Jacobs University Bremen, Germany
