Expository Discourse describes the social science research genre in an entirely original light. The authors present a comprehensive model which characterizes the generic, registerial and discoursal options as they interweave within a text, formulating explicit realization statements that relate the abstract categories of move and act (as described by Swales) to the way these units actually are created by lexical and grammatical choices. The realization networks draw on the work of systemic functional linguists, primarily Halliday, Hasan, Martin, and Ventola.

Industry Reviews

Reviewed in Library Journal, January 2001
Highlights: "A self-described 'Muslim feminist cowgirl, ' Hasan writes this compelling work to help Americans overcome anti-Muslim stereotypes and to learn something about America's fastest growing religion. At the same time, she gives an engaging first-person account of what Islam may become as the American-born children of immigrants adapt their faith to American culture Readers should prepare to encounter appealing discussions of the place of women in Islam, 'CyberIslam, ' the virtues of permitting Muslim young people to date, and a critique of strict gender separation in mosques. Very highly recommended."
