Abstract:

This volume analyses the defence system in the 17th-Century English 
courtroom and sees how defendants attempted to construct their discourse 
identity and articulate their defence in the arraignment section and in the 
evidence phase of the trial. Drawing upon theories from socio-pragmatics and 
(critical) discourse analysis the book investigates the complex face-work 
dynamics operating between defendants and professionals/witnesses, the 
main defence strategies adopted in the evidence phase and - at the author-
readership discourse level - the way in which Royalist defendants were 
represented in Royalist accounts in the turbulent years of the Civil War. The 
author draws on a rich variety of trial texts: from high treason to religious 
subversion, from murder to felony and misdemeanour. In each case the 
defendant's discourse behaviour is scrutinised in relation to historical, socio-
cultural and institutional variables.

In its double focus on the defendants' interactional role in the trial and their 
representation in Royalist accounts, the book offers a valuable reading for 
historical courtroom linguists, legal historians and researchers in the field of 
language, ideology and political propaganda in the early modern period.
