Overview

Discourse Analysis: Investigating Processes of Social Construction is the first book to provide a concise, straightforward guide for students and researchers who are interested in understanding and using discourse analysis. The authors reflect on the practice of analyzing discourse and the potential for revealing the processes of social construction that constitute social and organizational life. Addressed to graduate students, academics, and experienced researchers, this book is a comprehensive guide for those new to discourse analysis as well as for researchers in need of a complement to other modes of inquiry.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Management scholars Phillips (U. of Cambridge) and Hardy (U. of Melbourne) address doctoral students embarking on discourse analysis, practicing researchers who want to use it to complement other modes of inquiry, veteran discourse analysts who want to find out what their colleagues are up to, and academics who never intend to use it but want to know what it is. They do not offer them an index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
