Having established the official discourses of American and British governments, their political opposition as well as the media criticism fielded against them, chapters 8 and 9 shift the theoretical and methodological focus and pursue an analysis of the intertextual web spun within the debate on Bosnia. The analytical use of basic discourses from chapters 6 and 7 is retained in that chapter 8 is devoted to texts which articulate the Balkan discourse or variations thereof, and chapter 9 is concerned with texts set within the Genocide discourse and its modifications. Drawing upon the theory of intertextuality presented in chapter 4, chapter 8 identifies the key Balkan discourse texts which have been constituted as influential within official foreign policymaking or which have been highly discussed and referred to within the larger media, public, and academic debates. Using the vocabulary of intertextual models, this chapter thus pursues the main intertextual links constituted within intertextual models 1 and 2. Having identified these texts, the analytical ambition of this chapter is to subject them to a double reading: to analyze the way in which key texts were read and constructed within the debate and to conduct a primary reading of the texts themselves.
