The Routledge handbook of language and politics by Ruth Wodak( )

20 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of this core and dynamic area of study and research. Language is indispensable to initiating, justifying, legitimatising and coordinating action as well as negotiating conflict and, as such, is intrinsically linked to the area of politics. With 45 chapters written by leading scholars from around the world, this Handbook covers the following key areas: * Overviews of the most influential theoretical approaches, including Bourdieu, Marx, Habermas and Foucault; * Methodological approaches to language and politics, covering discourse analysis, cognitive linguistics, and multimodal analysis; * Genres of political action from speech-making and policy to national anthems and billboards; * Cutting-edge case studies about hot-topic socio-political phenomena, such as aging, social class, gendered politics, populism, and the politics of religion. This is a vibrant survey of this key field and is essential reading for advanced students and researchers studying language and politics
Lessons from the past? : memory, narrativity and subjectivity by Bernhard Forchtner( )

12 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reconstructs how claims to know 'the lessons' from past wrongdoings are made useful in the present. These claims are powerful tools in contemporary debates over who we are, who we want to be and what we should do. Drawing on a wide range of spoken and written texts from Austria, Denmark, Germany and the United States, this book proposes an abstract framework through which such claims can be understood. It does so by conceptualising four rhetorics of learning and how each of them links memories of past wrongdoings to opposition to present and future wrongdoings. Drawing extensively on narrative theory, Lessons from the Past? reconstructs how links between past, present and future can be narrativised, thus helping to understand the subjectivities and feelings that these stories facilitate. The book closes by considering if and how such rhetorics might live up to their promise to know 'the lessons' and to enable learning, offering a revised theory of collective learning processes
The far right and the environment : politics, discourse and communication by Bernhard Forchtner( )

10 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the beginning of the 21st century, both the crisis of liberal democracy, as visible in the rise of far-right actors in Europe and the alt-right phenomenon in the United States, and environmental crises, from declining biodiversity to climate change, are increasingly in the public spotlight. Whilst both areas have been analysed extensively on their own, The Far Right and the Environment: Politics, Discourse and Communication provides much-needed insights into their intersection by illuminating the environmental communication of far-right party and non-party actors in Europe and the United States. Although commonly perceived as a 'left-wing' issue today, concerns over the natural environment by the far right have a centuries-old, ideology-driven history. Thus, it is not surprising that some members of the far right offer distinctive ecological visions of communal life, though, for example, climate-change scepticism is at times voiced too. Investigating this range of stances within their discourse about the natural environment provides a window into the wider politics of the far right and points to a close connection between the politics of identity and the imagination of nature. Connecting the fields of environmental communication and study of the far right, contributions to this edited volume therefore offer timely assessments of this often-overlooked dimension of far-right politics"--
The new authoritarianism by Alan Waring( )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This two [that is, three]-volume book considers from a risk perspective the current phenomenon of the new alt-right authoritarianism and whether it represents 'real' democracy or an unacceptable hegemony potentially resulting in elected dictatorships and abuses as well as dysfunctional government. Contributing authors represent an eclectic range of disciplines, including cognitive, organizational and political psychology, sociology, history, political science, international relations, linguistics and discourse analysis, and risk analysis. The alt-right threats and risk exposures, whether to democracy, human rights, law and order, social welfare, racial harmony, the economy, national security, the environment, and international relations, are identified and analyzed across a number of selected countries. While Vol. 1 focuses on the U.S., Vol. 2 (ISBN 978-3-8382-1263-0) illuminates the phenomenon in the UK, Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Italy, Hungary, and Russia. Potential strategies to limit the alt-right threat are proposed"--Back cover, volume 2

Tracking the rise of the radical right globally( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2018 was a tumultuous year in global politics. Starting with the rise of the Lega Nord in Italy and ending with the election of Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil, it has never been such a pertinent time to study the radical right. This yearbook pulls together the best commentary and analysis from an international consortium of expert scholars examining the ebb and flow of radical right movements from around the world. Starting with a concise analysis of key definitions of the radical right and historical precursors, it takes the reader on a journey through European, then American, and finally through non-Western manifestations of the radical right. The book ends with a thematic analysis of key tactics and issues related to the radical right including social media, hate crime, and terrorism. This unique survey provides an unparalleled snapshot of global developments in 2018 useful to scholars, students, practitioners, and interested members of the public alike

Kalashnikov and cooking-spoon : neo-nazism, veganism and a lifestyle cooking show on YouTube by Bernhard Forchtner( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Food consumption has always been a deeply symbolic, identity-related issue. But contrary to the intuitive assumption that links meat-free diets to peace-loving, left-leaning actors and ideologies, this article illustrates how a group of (German) neo-Nazis, Balaclava Küche (Balaclava Kitchen), appropriates vegan diet in its YouTube cooking videos. Analyzing these videos, supported by an interview with the group, the article inquires into the various ways in which cooking and food consumption are intertwined with their politics. It closes by putting the group's attitude into a wider perspective, suggesting an ideal typical model of how links between culture, nature, and identity can be understood
