Book Information


Title: Language and Globalization
Written By: Norman Fairclough

This book uses critical discourse analysis to investigate relations between
discourse and other dimensions (economic, political, social and cultural)
of contemporary processes of globalization, and the effects that discourse
has on globalization. It uses an innovative approach which combines
critical discourse analysis with 'cultural' political economy to develop a
new theory of the relationship between discourse and other dimensions of
globalization, and it shows how analysis of texts can be coherently
integrated within political economic analysis.

There are chapters on the globalization and Europeanization of
nation-states, the relationship between the real processes of globalization
and discourses of globalization, the impact of the media on globalization
and the strategies of people in local communities to adapt to globalization
or resist its negative effects. The book focuses on 'globalism' as the
dominant neo-liberal discourse of globalization and includes a chapter
which interprets the 'war on terror' as part of global strategy. Examples
are drawn from a variety of different countries including the USA, Britain,
Romania, Hungary and Thailand, and discussion of these examples includes
analysis of specific texts.
