New South African Keywords sets out to do two things. The first is to provide a guide to the key words and key concepts that have come to shape public and political thought and debate in South Africa since 1994. The second purpose is to provide a compendium of cutting-edge thinking on the new society. The result is a concise and insightful guide to postapartheid South Africa, which should be useful to students, citizens, tourists, business managers, decision makers—in fact, to anyone wanting to make sense of South African society today.

Building on Raymond Williams' iconic "Keywords" released in 1975, Jeffries and Walker show how some pivotal words significantly increased in use and evolved in meaning during the years of the 'New Labour' project. Focussing on print news media, this book establishes a set of socio-political keywords for the 'Blair Years', and demonstrates how their evolving meanings are indicative of the ideological landscape in Britain at that time, and the extent to which the cultural hegemony of the New Labour project influenced the language of the commentariat. Combining corpus linguistic approaches with critical stylistics the authors conduct an analysis of two newspaper corpora using computational tools. Looking closely at textually-constructed meanings within the data, their investigation of the keywords has a qualitative focus, and sets out a clear methodology for combining corpus approaches with systematic co-textual analysis.

“A clever, even witty examination of the manipulation of language in these days of neoliberal or late stage capitalism” (Counterpunch). From Silicon Valley to the White House, from kindergarten to college, and from the factory floor to the church pulpit, we are all called to be innovators and entrepreneurs, to be curators of an ever-expanding roster of competencies, and to become resilient and flexible in the face of the insults and injuries we confront at work. In the midst of increasing inequality, these keywords teach us to thrive by applying the lessons of a competitive marketplace to every sphere of life. What’s more, by celebrating the values of grit, creativity, and passion at school and at work, they assure us that economic success is nothing less than a moral virtue. Organized alphabetically as a lexicon, Keywords explores the history and common usage of major terms in the everyday language of capitalism. Because these words have infiltrated everyday life, their meanings may seem self-evident, even benign. Who could be against empowerment, after all? Keywords uncovers the histories of words like innovation, which was once synonymous with “false prophecy” before it became the prevailing faith of Silicon Valley. Other words, like best practices and human capital, are relatively new coinages that subtly shape our way of thinking. As this book makes clear, the new language of capitalism burnishes hierarchy, competition, and exploitation as leadership, collaboration, and sharing, modeling for us the habits of the economically successful person: be visionary, be self-reliant—and never, ever stop working.

In SEO & PPC: Better Together, Melanie Mitchell shows how to use search engine optimization (SEO) and pay-per-click (PPC) together to achieve better results than either can deliver alone. You’ll learn how to integrate SEO and PPC in campaigns that engage more consumers and use data from both to improve the performance of each. Mitchell begins by comparing the paid and organic search marketing “pathways,” reviewing applications, overlaps, differences, strengths, weaknesses, and tradeoffs. Next, Mitchell shows how paid search data can be a gold mine when figuring out where to focus your SEO efforts, and understanding what content to optimize or build based on your actual ROI rather than relying on indirect traffic estimates from keyword research tools. She presents the latest research on synergies between SEO and PPC, shows how to handle new analytical complexities introduced by changes in Google’s search privacy policies, and offers practical, step-by-step guidance for building a KPI-linked dashboard that organizes your data and makes it more usable. From start to finish, Mitchell’s techniques and guidance are designed to help marketers become smarter about focusing their time and budgets, evaluating current returns, and optimizing the value of every campaign they create.
