'Analysing Political Discourse is provocative and offers readers a unique international perspective. The author's in-depth linguistic analyses of various contemporary samples of political discourse bring to light different mental representations of political thought and behavior. Given its broad scope, Analysing Political Discourse would be a valuable resource for researchers in the fields of discourse analysis, English, linguistics, sociolinguistics, and communication studies.' - Linguist List
'In just a short time, this book has become indispensable reading for those interested in the use of language in the world of politics; as much as for its clarity and readability as for the relevance of its theoretical paradigm for political discourse analysis.' - Suvremena lingvistika (Contemporary Linguistics)
