Description

"Political Keywords" presents an overview of how American political communication has been changed by the use of certain dominant political terms. The book therefore offers something new, based as it is on eleven separate studies of the political language used in the United States during the last half-century. The studies on which our findings are based derive from several language databases assembled at the University of Texas during the past decade. By marrying social science rigour with subtle forms of cultural interpretation, "Political Keywords" offers a fresh understanding of American language. The result is a book with vision and breadth, one suited to readers from a wide variety of backgrounds.show more
