Overview

Discourse Analysis: Investigating Processes of Social Construction / Edition 1

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
