Discourse and Discrimination is a study of how racism, anti-Semitism, and ethnicism are reflected in discourse. Through the analysis of an impressive variety of documents, Reisigl and Wodak present detailed case studies of anti-Semitism, institutional racism, and political xenophobia in Austria. The book provides a survey of different discourse analysis approaches, analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of each, and concludes with the authors' own model of Critical Discourse Analysis.
