This book is a powerful research analysis of public opinion and media reporting of justice. The language of politicians, judges and the justice system is analysed and reveals a disturbing discourse of disapproval leading to the discourse of direction in Australia and elsewhere. Dr. Schulz suggests ways of analysing and managing ways to counter negative opinion. Judges, legal scholars, politicians and journalists alike will be interested in this new look at language and power. It suggests many organisations such as courts may need development in discourse analysis and communication management as tools to counter negativity and directly address community.
