Book

Transparency, Power and Control: Perspectives on Legal Communication

Farnham; Burlington: Ashgate, 2012.
Editor-in-chief: V. K. Bhatia, C. A. Hafner, L. Miller, A. Wagner.

This book brings together academics and practitioners from a range of disciplines from more than twenty countries to reflect on the growing importance of transparency, power and control in our international community and how these concerns and ideas have been examined, used and interpreted in a range of national and international contexts. Contributors explore these issues from a range of overlapping concerns and perspectives, such as semiotic, sociolinguistic, psychological, philosophical, and visual in diverse socio-political, administrative, institutional, as well as legal contexts.

The collection examines the ways in which 'actors' in our society - legislators, politicians, activists, and artists - have provoked public discourses to confront these issues.
