9780199937271: Discourses of War and Peace (Oxford Studies in Sociolinguistics)

Given the prevalence of war around the world, it is vital to understand the way discourse contributes to the promotion and positioning of war as a natural or inevitable response to international problems. In addition, it is equally necessary to examine the way discourse impacts projects of peace, which seek to displace discourses of war with alternative visions of the world. This volume examines specific contexts around the world in which discourse operates in the service of war or to build alternative visions of peace. Contributors, who have backgrounds in linguistics, anthropology, rhetoric, and communication studies, draw upon discourse analytic and ethnographic methods to examine the discourse used by politicians and social actors in societies across the globe, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Morocco, Ireland, the Palestinian territories, and Japan. The book is divided into four sections that foreground the political effects of discourse on issues of war and peace, including the way discourse is harnessed to justify war (part I), negotiate military deployment (part II), respond to armed conflict (part III), and promote peace (part IV).

About the Author:


Adam Hodges is author of The 'War on Terror' Narrative: Discourse and Intertextuality in the Construction and Contestation of Sociopolitical Reality (2011, Oxford University Press), and co-editor of Discourse, War and Terrorism (2007, John Benjamins Publishing). His work in discourse analysis examines the social, cultural, and political dimensions of language use, particularly the way discourse intersects with power to shape the social world in which we live.

Review:


"...Discourses of War and Peace is an interesting... collection not only for scholars in sociolinguistics and Memory Studies, but also for open-minded political scientists and researchers in American Studies, comparative history, linguistic anthropology, International Relations and Peace Studies." --Discourse & Communication

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Discourses of War and Peace examines specific contexts around the globe in which discourse operates in the service of war and to build alternative visions of peace. Contributors, who come from backgrounds in linguistics, anthropology, rhetoric, and communication studies, draw from discourse analytic and/or ethnographic methods to examine the discourse used by politicians and social actors in societies that include the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Morocco, Ireland, the Palestinian territories, and Japan. The book is divided into four sections that foreground the political effects of discourse on issues of war and peace, including the way discourse is harnessed to justify war (part I), negotiate military deployment (part II), respond to armed conflict (part III), and promote peace (part IV). The book has a strong enthnographic component; in addition to chapters that employ critical discourse analysis and narrative analysis, several chapters incorporate ethnographic analysis into the examination of language use. The book as a whole therefore provides complementary perspectives on discourses of war and peace. Bookseller Inventory # AOP9780199937271
