Title: Politics as Text and Talk
Subtitle: Analytic approaches to political discourse
Edited By: Paul Chilton
Christina Schäffner
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DAPSAC_4
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 4
Description:

Human beings are political animals.
They are also articulate mammals.
How are these two aspects linked?
This is a question that is only beginning to be explored. The present collection makes a contribution to the investigations into the use of language in those situations which, informally and intuitively, we call ‘political’. Such an approach is revealing not only for politics itself but also for the human language capacity.
Each chapter outlines a particular method or analytic approach and illustrates its application to a contemporary political issue, institution or mode of political behaviour. As a whole, the collection aims to give a sample of current research in the field. It will interest those who are beginning to carry the research paradigm forward, as well as provide an introduction for newcomers, whether they come from neighbouring or remote disciplines or from none.
