Title: Manipulation and Ideologies in the Twentieth Century
Subtitle: Discourse, language, mind
Edited By: Louis A. de Saussure
Peter J. Schulz
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DAPSAC%2017
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 17
Description:

This book is a collection of 12 papers dealing with manipulation and
ideology in the 20th century, mostly with reference to political speeches
by the leaders of major totalitarian regimes, but also addressing
propaganda within contemporary right-wing populism and western ideological
rhetoric. This book aims at bringing together researchers in the field of
ideology reproduction in order to better understand the underlying
mechanisms of speaker-favourable belief inculcation through language use.
The book covers a wide range of theoretical perspectives, from psychosocial
approaches and discourse analysis to semantics and cognitive linguistics
and pragmatics. The book’s central concern is to provide not only a
textbook with up-to-date information on the analysis of manipulation in
discourse but also a number of tools for the scholar, some of them being
developed within theories originally not designed to address belief-change
through language interpretation. Foreword by Frans van Eemeren.
