I bought this based entirely on the title. What a mistake. Had I checked the back cover, with names like Lacan, Zizek, and Derrida, I would have steered clear of the thing. To be fair, the introduction was not bad, and the actual case studies were mostly interesting as historical narratives. Tellingly, much of the book becomes gobbledygook when the authors try to theorise what the narratives mean--especially the chapters using the above trio. The hegemony analysis makes a bit more sense, luckily [...]

it did not meet my expectations. I hoped clearer empirical accounts of discourse analyses which touch upon methodological issues. Overall, all analyses remain vague and loosely inter-connected.

It is a bit hardly written. Not a piece of cake reading, but delivers very good understanding over the subject.

excellent compendium!
