Abstract: Louis de Saussure & Peter Schulz (eds.), Manipulation and ideologies in the twentieth century. Amsterdam: Benjamins, 2005. Pp. xvi, 312. Hb €115.00/$US 138.00

One of the interesting developments in discourse analysis is its increasing interest in the explicit description and account of politically relevant text and talk and their relationships to various forms of social cognition. The collection of studies edited by Louis de Saussure and Peter Schulz is among those books that focus on this interface between political discourse and political cognition. It does so specifically by examining one of the most conspicuous forms of discursive power abuse – manipulation – as well as its relationship with ideologies, especially the totalitarian right-wing ideologies of the 20th century.
