    "[Genetically Modified Organisms: A Scientific-Political Dialogue on a Meaningless Meme] is an excellent book presenting a very strong case for abandoning the acronym GMO. It will be extremely helpful to scholars and educators in developing countries who need to persuade their populace and politicians to adopt modern methods to reap the benefits of more nutritious foods and greatly improved yields."

Pragmatics, Discourse and Society, Volume 2: A Festschrift for Akin Odebunmi

This two-volume work speaks to the entire scope of Professor Odebunmi’s research concerns in general pragmatics, medical/clinical pragmatics, literary discourse, critical discourse analysis, applied linguistics and language sociology. Its 52 chapters across both volumes (24 chapters in the first volume and 28 chapters in this volume), written by established scholars such as Jacob Mey, Paul Hopper, Joyce Mathangwane, and Ming-Yu Tseng, in addition to the honoree, explore the dynamics of the interplay of spatial, temporal, agential and (non-)institutional factors that drive discourse/textual constructions, negotiations and interpretations and sometimes influence human cognition and actions. Due to the richness, authority and wide applicability of both volumes, the book will appeal to all academics, researchers and students interested in the interface of context and meaning in human communication.
