Discourse in Late Modernity


Chouliaraki and Fairclough survey the landscape of contemporary critical theory as familiars and even masters. The authors' command of the human sciences is beyond impressive, so much so that the book is equally valuable to sociologists and discourse analysts - one need not be familiar with the esoterica of text analysis, for example, to appreciate the dense connections made here between discursive and social realities. Highly theoretical and pragmatic at the same time, the book provides crucial links between the semologic and sociologic dimensions of late modern life. Drawing on CDA, on the one hand, and the social theory of Bourdieu, Giddens, Foucault, and Bernstein, on the other, the book will be valuable reading for anyone concerned that the proliferation of discourses (of all kinds) in late modernity has not yet been accompanied by a critical awareness of the social systems in which these discourses emerge and interact - only to implode back into the social.
