This book is a powerful research analysis of public opinion and media
reporting of justice. The language of politicians, judges and the justice
system is analysed and reveals a disturbing discourse of disapproval
leading to the discourse of direction in Australia and elsewhere.
Dr. Schulz suggests ways of analysing and managing ways to counter negative
opinion. Judges, legal scholars, politicians and journalists alike will be
interested in this new look at language and power. It suggests many
organisations such as courts may need development in discourse analysis
and communication management as tools to counter negativity and directly
address community.

Dr. Pamela Schulz is part time
lecturer in Graduate studies at the School of Communication, International
Studies and Languages of the University of South Australia at
Adelaide. Dr. Schulz is interested in research focussed on Communication
Management and public opinion particularly in areas such as law,
government, defence and health.
