China s opening up to the West, its extraordinary economic rise, and the subsequent internal and global issues, are an object of huge interest and concern. "Discourse and Socio-political Transformations in Contemporary China" focuses on one aspect of the contemporary Chinese phenomenon, one that is so obvious that it is generally ignored in the mainstream academic departments that politics, society and transformation are the product of myriad collective linguistic interchanges, some stabilized, some competing, some agonistic, some new and emerging.As an outcome of dialogue between Chinese and Western scholars, the present volume contains case studies that offer a survey of the discourse aspect of Chinese society in social stratification, government service, policy consultancy, higher education, foreign policy, and TV. The conceptual reflections on discourse and critique in different cultures offer new considerations for discourse analysis, including critical discourse analysis, in the context of Chinese society today.This volume was originally published as a special issue of "Journal of Language and Politics" 9:4 (2010)."
