Formatted Abstract/Summary
Despite the fact that policy is increasingly led by the mass media, social policy research has so far focused on variable and quantitative measurement rather than cultural meanings and moral welfare debates.Taking a critical examination of social policy on public housing by way of illustration, this book demonstrates how critical discourse theory can be used in applied research. It shows how the theory and method of critical discourse analysis can be worked together in an intricate and accessible way.
