This volume provides a broad analysis of the term "discourse" and a thorough examination of the many theoretical assumptions surrounding it. In the revised edition of this invaluable guidebook, Sara Mills:
*examines the historical definitions and developments of discourse
*analyzes Foucault's use of the term and its appropriation in the fields of linguistics, social psychology, and feminist, colonial and post-colonial theory
*explores the changes that have taken place in the field of critical discourse analysis since original publication
*discusses the work of various discourse theorists, including Zizek and Bourdieu.
A fully updated bibliography, new glossary and suggestions for further reading make this more than ever the essential introductory guide to the concept of discourse for students of literary theory.
