A ground-breaking work, Read the Cultural Other argues that non-Western discourses cannot be contained in a 'general', 'universal', or 'integrated' model of linguistic communication or discourse, but must be understood from a culturally pluralist perspective. Proceeding from this standpoint, it offers a variety of innovative analyses of China and Hong Kong's discourses on the decolonization of the latter. Drawing on culturally different methods and local cultural context, these studies reveal the discursive complexity, diversity, and forms of otherness of Hong Kong and China. Key features Takes acomprehensive look at China and Hong Kong's non-Western discourses. Now available as an affordable paperback. Ofinterest to Teachers, Researchers, and Graduate Students in Discourse, Communication, and Media Studies.
