Ruth Wodak is one of the foremost scholars in the field of linguistics and politics, a prolific writer whose scholarship has gained her an international reputation in academic circles and beyond. Much of Wodaks work has been devoted to the study of political extremism (Krzyżanowski and Wodak, 2009; Richardson and Wodak, 2009 are recent examples). This new book from Professor Wodak should be of interest to all who are seeking to understand the threat of political extremism in Europe today.

Accessible text; good summary of general far-right party characteristics and good introduction to discourse analysis for non-communications specialists. Perfect for an upper level undergrad/early grad school course on far-right party strategies.

Only through understanding the language of such movements can we hope to understand why they're so popular, and how best we can challenge them. Therefore, this book isn't only useful to students of discourse studies, but to anybody with an interest in the subject of right-wing populism. It's a book that can be used as source material for university essays, but it can also sit beside your mass market Noam Chomsky book.

It offers an excellent introduction especially to novices in the area of discourse, right-wing ...more
