The volume explores the vast and heterogeneous territory of Political Linguistics, structuring and developing its concepts, themes and methodologies into combined and coherent Analysis of Political Discourse (APD). Dealing with an extensive and representative variety of topics and domains – political rhetoric, mediatized communication, ideology, politics of language choice, etc. – it offers uniquely systematic, theoretically grounded insights in how language is used to perform power-enforcing/imbuing practices in social interaction, and how it is deployed for communicating decisions concerning language itself. The twenty chapters in the volume, written by specialists in political linguistics, (critical) discourse analysis, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, and social psychology, address the diversity of political discourse to propose novel perspectives from which common analytic procedures can be drawn and followed. The volume is thus an essential resource for anyone looking for a coherent research agenda in explorations of political discourse as a point of reference for their own academic activities, both scholarly and didactic.

Table of Contents
“As a whole, the chapters present promising directions in the analysis of political discourse since they coherently connect the role of history, ideology and struggle in shaping not only language practices but also discursive practices embedded in society. Likewise, the varying contexts in which these studies have been conducted provide rich possibilities for replication studies, as the insights presented in this volume are bound to be confirmed or challenged. Finally, the greatest strength of this volume is its effective presentation of employing frameworks inherited from different fields (historiography, cognitive science and translation studies), giving readers a range of options in examining the intersections of language, politics and power.”
“Politics in today's world consists of almost continuous interconnected talking and writing in a constantly expanding media universe. This comprehensive collection of papers edited by Urszula Okulska and Piotr Cap helps readers to get a hold on the flow of discourse that constitutes politics today. Indispensible for anyone seeking perspectives for understanding the language of politics and research methods for probing beyond the surface.”
