MEDIA REVIEWS

'I came to this collection as a discourse theory sceptic. I still have doubts, but the editors' lucid and helpful introduction, and the excellent chapters, have opened my eyes and ears to the potential value of this approach. This is a major contribution to theorising the contemporary media.'

- David Hesmondhalgh, University of Leeds, UK

'Lincoln Dahlberg and Sean Phelan have compiled an excellent collection of studies on Discourse Theory and Critical Media Politics that clarify how discourse theory can work to enrich media/communication studies. The introduction provides a succinct overview of contemporary discussions and positions concerning discourse theory and the succeeding articles provide articulation of the concept with studies of media, democracy, and contemporary politics.'

- Douglas Kellner, UCLA, USA

'This is a most welcome volume. It presents a long overdue engagement between media politics and discourse theory. Combining theoretical discussion and empirical illustration, this important volume takes Discourse Theory forward in this crucial field.'

- Lasse Thomassen, Queen Mary, University of London, UK

'...this collection provides the reader with a very clear and lucid explanation of discourse theories and critical media politics.' - Journal of Language and Politics

'[This volume] helps to fill a needed gap in revealing the positive potentials of combining discourse theory with critical media politics both in terms of theoretical complementarity and practical implications [It] is a great source for anyone interested in the growing role of 'media' for twenty-first-century politics.' Peter Bloom, Critical Discourse Studies

'[The contributors'] approach and topics are definitely political, critical, original and, I would add, rigorous, in their continuity with the works of Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe.' - Yves Laberge, Media, Culture & Society
