Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Texts and Practices provides an essential introduction to the theory and practice of Critical Discourse Analysis. Using insights from this challenging new method of linguistic analysis, the contributors to this book reveal the ways in which language can be used as a means of social control.

The essays in Texts and Practices demonstrate how Critical Discourse Analysis can be applied to a variety of written and spoken texts, by deconstructing data from a range of contexts, countries and spheres and exposing hidden patterns of discrimination and inequalities of power. Texts and Practices, which includes specially commissioned papers from a range of distinguished authors, provides a state-of-the-art introduction to Critical Discourse Analysis, making it an important contribution to this developing field. It will be essential for all those interested in language, media and cultural studies.
