'The revisions to the volume will be of value both to those who are
familiar with the original work, and to those who encounter it for the
first time. Changes in the European Union in the years since the initial
volume was published mean that this second edition is very timely and
topical. The authors are highly experienced, with extensive publishing
records. The revised volume will be an important text for students taking
postgraduate courses in Discourse Studies, Critical Discourse Analysis, and
Nationalism Studies. The book will also be of considerable value to
academics working in these and related fields.'
- Adrian Blackledge, University of Birmingham

'Without exaggeration, the re-edition of the book is crucial. As a founding
editor of four international journals (such as 'Discourse & Society') and
as thesis director, I often have to recommend students to read up on
discourse and national identity, and there are virtually no books on the
topic. This book has become the standard reference.'
- Teun A. van Dijk, Visiting Professor, Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona

How do we construct national identities in discourse? Which topics, which
discursive strategies and which linguistic devices are employed to
construct national sameness and uniqueness on the one hand, and differences
to other national collectives on the other hand? 'The Discursive
Construction of National Identity' analyses discourses of national identity
in Europe with particular attention to Austria.

In the tradition of critical discourse analysis, the authors have developed
a method of description and analysis of national identity which has
applications to many other western European states. The authors interpret
ongoing transformations in the self- and other- definition of national
identity using an innovative approach which combines discourse-historical
theory and methodology and political science approaches. The book analyses
the rhetorical promotion of national identification and the linguistic
construction and reproduction of national difference on public, semi-public
and semi-private levels within a nation state. It contains many concrete
text and discourse examples as well as analyses.

In addition to the critical discourse analysis of multiple genres
accompanying various commemorative and celebratory events in 1995, this
extended and revised edition is able to draw comparisons with similar
events in 2005. The impact of socio-political changes in Austria and in the
European Union is also made transparent in the attempts of constructing
hegemonic national identities.

Key Features:
*Discourse-historical approach.
*Interdisciplinarity (cultural studies, discourse analysis, history,
political science).
*Multi-method, multi-genre.
*Qualitative case studies.
