about

This book shows how the study of the evolving discourse employed during a political process spanning more than a decade can provide insights for critical discourse analysis on the one hand, and understanding of a real world political process on the other, thereby demonstrating the potential role for critical discourse analysis in historiography.
JOHN FLOWERDEW is a Professor in the Department of English, City University of Hong Kong, China, where he has worked since 1989. His main research and teaching interest is discourse analysis in its many varieties and manifestations.
