This edited volume explores the discursive, performative and mediated dimensions of contemporary political discourse. The strengths of the volume are manifold: it contains cutting edge interdisciplinary research on political discourses by international authors (UK, USA, Italy, Germany, Austria, Denmark) in political science, discourse linguistic and social interaction research. The contributions represent a wide range of methodological approaches to political discourse, analyzing a broad variety of genres, some of which have been less analyzed to-date, for example Wikipedia articles in combination with their discussion pages or the interaction between politicians and voters in the constituency office of a British Member of Parliament. The contributions also focus on political discourses of high and relevant topicality, such as EU membership of Britain, populism, migration and xenophobia, terrorism and narratives in international relations.

Table of Contents
“At the present time there is a pressing need for us all to stand back from the verbal maelstrom that is politics today and ask what is going on. We need more, and more penetrating, analysis of political discourse. This collection, edited by Michael Kranert and Geraldine Horan, is indeed timely. The contributors probe a wide range of political discourse types, investigate different media and contexts, and introduce a whole panoply of revealing methods and techniques.”
“This is a key reference work which systematically covers the multifaceted aspects and dimensions of political discourse. Bringing together senior and junior scholars from various disciplinary backgrounds, it represents the major achievements in the study of political discourse over the last few decades.”
