Title: Metaphor and Political Discourse
Subtitle: Analogical Reasoning in Debates about Europe
Written By: Andreas Musolff
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403933898
Description:

Andreas Musolff provides an analysis of the function of metaphor in
political discourse, based on material from an extensive corpus of British
and German press coverage of EU politics between 1989 and 2001. The
analysis of distributions of 'metaphor scenarios' in the two corpus samples
reveals differences in attitude and argumentative tendencies and leads to a
refinement of cognitive metaphor theory. The ethical dimension of metaphor
in politics is further explored with reference to Hobbes' Leviathan.
