The papers in this book explore language use in a broad range of discourse
fields. They provide theoretical perspectives on global orientations to
social, political and economic transformations in the "New World Order"
(NWO), and extend these with studies on the impacts of such transformations
at the local, national, regional and global levels. The discussions
highlight current concerns among academics and political commentators about
the potential social impact of representations of the NWO in language and
discourse. The present work is important in raising social consciousness
towards the central role that language and discourse play in the
construction of shifting/multiple identities. In this way, the roles of
critical discourse analysis and indeed that of the analysts themselves are
emancipative and socially transformative. The value of such
consciousness-raising for potential social action in language user
empowerment terms cannot be overstressed, particularly given the ascendant
position of the English language in the NWO. This collection is a
significant contribution to the ongoing critical discussion on global order
