Abstract:

In this accessible new textbook, Isabela and Norman Fairclough present their
innovative approach to analysing political discourse.

"Political Discourse Analysis" integrates analysis of arguments into critical
discourse analysis and political discourse analysis. The book is grounded in
a view of politics in which deliberation, decision and action are crucial
concepts: politics is about arriving cooperatively at decisions about what to
do in the context of disagreement, conflict of interests and values, power
inequalities, uncertainty and risk.

The first half of the book introduces the authors' new approach to the
analysis and evaluation of practical arguments, while the second half
explores how it can be applied by looking at examples such as government
reports, parliamentary debates, political speeches and online discussion
forums on political issues. Through the analysis of current events, including a
particular focus on the economic crisis and political responses to it, the
authors provide a systematic and rigorous analytical framework that can be
adopted and used for students' own research.

This exciting new text, co-written by bestselling author Norman Fairclough, is
essential reading for researchers, upper undergraduate and postgraduate
students of discourse analysis, within English language, linguistics,
communication studies, politics and other social sciences.
