Abstract:
			
Analysing Political Discourse is a must for anyone interested in the
way language is used in the world of politics. Based on Aristotle's
premise that we are all political animals, able to use language to
pursue our own ends, the book uses the theoretical framework of
linguistics to explore the ways in which we think and behave
politically. Domestic and global politics come under the linguistic
microscope. What do politicians really do in a radio interview? What
verbal games do they play? The book draws on contemporary and high
profile case studies. International in its perspective, Analysing
Political Discourse also considers the changing landscape of global
political language post-September 11, focusing on self-legitimising
language and the increasing use of religious imagery in political
discourse. Bill Clinton's address persuading his country to go to war
in Kosovo is analyzed, and speeches by George Bush and Osama bin Laden
are examined in relation to each other. Written in a lively and
engaging style, Analysing Political Discourse offers a new theoretical
perspective on the study of language and politics, and provides an
essential introduction to political discourse analysis.
