Discourse Theory and Political Analysis : Identities, Hegemoni Paperback

Edited by David R. Howarth, Aletta J. Norval, Yannis Stavrakakis



One of the few books which systematically brings post-structuralist theory to bear on substantive political analysis.

Offers accessible accounts of different strands of discourse theory such as deconstruction, psychoanalysis and genealogy, which are applied to the analysis of specific cases such as Northern Ireland and contemporary East European politics.

Each chapter addresses a key theme and issue in contemporary politics.

Draws on inspiration from Ernesto Laclau, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault and Jacques Lacan.

Contains a clear introductory statement of the theoretical approach used and concludes with an assessment of the future directions of discourse theory in the social sciences.
