Abstract

A review of Rhetoric, Ideology and Social Psychology: Essays in honour of Michael Billig Edited by Charles Antaki and Susan Condor East Sussex, Routledge, 2014. This book is a collection of essays in honour of a scholar whose work many qualitative psychologists will be familiar with. The editors of the book describe him as ‘one of the most significant living figures in social psychology’ (p.iii). We might wish to add that he has made a significant contribution to qualitative inquiry in psychology. Michael Billig was a founding member (along with Jonathan Potter and Derek Edwards) of Loughbourgh’s Discourse and Rhetoric Group, which began in Billig’s office in 1987, and subsequently went on to make major methodological contributions to psychology, particularly regarding the application of discourse analysis to social psychology.
