Summary: This four-volume book mines the extensive research of the past few decades into textual analysis. The editors have collated seminal papers which consider the key difference between content analysis and textual analysis, the conceptual starting point and the logic and the attitude of the research process, as well as the tension between reading a text and using a text, among other key issues. The carefully selected papers in this collection are put into context and analysed in a newly-written introductory chapter which charts the developments and looks at the future of the field.
