About this book

This examines a significant aspect of contemporary social life: cultural identities and our linguistic means of constructing them. It combines a theoretical re-assessment of processes of identification with case studies of the discourses of three-generation families living in split-border communities along the former 'Iron Curtain'.

Reviews

' this book is highly topical at a time when, in Europe and the world in general, questions of identity and belonging offer significant challenges to society. The choice of the study sites here, combined with the personal identities of the two researchers, has yielded an original study that highlights the unique insight to be achieved in research on identity, through the discourse analytic approach.'
