Overview

This book presents an approach to narrative analysis from a critical social perspective. It describes the background to discursive and narrative approaches and then takes the reader through a variety of analysis at different 'levels'. These focus on narrative texts from a boy labelled as 'sexually abusive', analyzed seqentially from micro to more global levels. Through this extended example, the book demonstrates the power of narrative analytic procedures and the different effects produced by different levels of analysis.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"HIV/AIDS is devastating the world, especially the vulnerable and the poor, who bear the brunt of humiliation, discrimination and stigma. Restoring Hope is a heartfelt plea from different faiths, and philosophical and ethical perspectives for decent care, which treats people living with HIV as collaborators. It is a plea, I pray we heed." -- Desmond Tutu, Nobel Laureate and Archbishop Emeritus, Cape Town, South Africa
