Conflicts are inherent to human society, but most of them do not concern us directly as participants or eyewitnesses. How we see social conflicts depends on how they are presented to us.

This volume gathers together writings by contemporary specialists in different fields, from different backgrounds, cultures and locations, but united by a common thread: the conviction that history and current affairs are constructed and presented, not according to the facts themselves, but according to media, culture, politics, gender, religion and other factors.

Table of Contents
“This is an excellent book which contributes to a better understanding of conflict in our society. It covers a wide range of socio-political problems from a constructivist perspective. It will be particularly useful for researchers in the social sciences and discourse analysis as they will find theoretical reflections and a variety of methods to explain conflictive human interaction.”
“This is a book full of useful suggestions for Discourse Analysts and for all readers mindful of the changes and social conflicts being produced in today’s world, which are defining its new emerging identities. It combines a rich and varied theoretical base – constructivism, Critical Discourse Analysis, socio-cognitivism, etc. – with the exercise of effective analytical methodologies applied to historical, rhetorical, healthcare, educational or urban development affairs.”
“This is a well-edited book which gathers together contributions by contemporary specialists in different humanistic disciplines united by a common thread: that reality is constructed through discourse in the light of culture, politics, gender, religion and other factors. These constructivist and trans-disciplinary ideas constitute an important foundation on which current research into discourses about identity and conflict can be developed. The book will be particularly useful for researchers in the social sciences, particularly discourse analysis, as they will find theoretical reflections and a variety of methods to explain conflictive human interaction.”
