Why is there so much resistance to recent issues of tolerance and diversity? Despite efforts of the international community to encourage open-mindedness, recent attempts at international, political and economic integration have shown that religious, cultural and ethnic tolerance and diversity remain under threat. The contributions in the volume reflect the growing importance of these issues and why resistance is so widespread. Part I addresses the relationship between the language of law and its power, whilst Part II explores the interplay of tolerance and diversity under visual, legislative and interpretative perspectives. This collection as a whole offers a combination of varied perspectives on the analysis, application and exploitation of laws and will be a valuable source of information for those interested in the general area of language and the law.

'This book shows in convincingly elegant contributions how critical approaches to law have, independent from ideological or interest-driven criticisms, a semiotic foundation that provides a reconsideration of signs, symbols and meanings pertaining to social reality.' Jan M. Broekman, Penn State University, USA 'The distinguished editors have managed to bring together an impressive range of authors from four continents writing on a wide variety of topics linked to the book's central concern - disadvantage due to race, class, gender, religion, education, nationality, handicap, minority status and regional origin. This will be an excellent source book for postgraduate courses in the general area of Language and the Law.' Malcolm Coulthard, Aston University, UK
