MEDIA REVIEWS

'Jary's synthesis of linguistic, cognitive scientific and philosophical insights about assertion, so necessary at this stage of inquiry, is simply masterful: just the right degree of comprehensiveness; meticulous and balanced exegesis; and extreme clarity. There can be no question that this book will now become the point of departure for future studies of assertion as a unified, multifaceted cognitive-social phenomenon.' Rob Stainton, University of Western Ontario, Canada

'[This] book is well organized and engaging. Jary writes clearly and passionately, and I can recommend the book to anyone with a serious interest in assertion, and not just because it is the first monograph on the topic.' - Peter Pagin, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
