Investigative Discourse Analysis, Second Edition


Too often investigators from all areas and fields consider written statements, transcripts of interviews and interrogations, and letters as mere pieces of paper to be filed. They are only useful at face value - as simple records, sworn statements, archives. In "Investigative Discourse Analysis", Don Rabon demonstrates that there is hidden information in these documents that an astute investigator can use to break a case. This book will show you how to dissect a statement to determine where someone is concealing the truth.

"Investigative Discourse Analysis, Second Edition" introduces techniques for discourse analysis in which a statement can be examined for more information than that available to the untrained eye. Learn to look for the sensitive areas of a statement or transcript where there might be deception and indications of the intent to falsify or conceal in this top-rated book.
