Chinese Discourse Studies presents a culturally innovative approach to discourse and communication. Incorporating Chinese cultural and intellectual wisdom, it constructs a systematic paradigm of discourse studies, complete with distinct philosophy, theory, methodology and agenda. Further, the volume illustrates the use of the new paradigm by making empirical studies of Chinese discourses of human rights, trade friction and urban development. The book unpacks culturally critical implications for understanding and researching human communication, rendering itself an invaluable resource for students and scholars of discourse, media, culture, as well as contemporary China.
