Description

Until a century ago, a metaphor was just a mere figure of speech, but since the development of discourse analysis a metaphor has become more than merely incidental to the content of the arguments or findings. Students and scholars in political studies know the importance of metaphors in electoral and policy-related politics, coming across metaphors that are, knowingly or unknowingly, influencing our perception of politics.

This book is the first to develop new methodological approaches to understand and analyse the use of metaphor in political science and international relations. It does this by:

  • Combining theory with case studies in order to advance substantive work in politics and international relations that focuses on metaphor
  • Expands the range of empirical case studies that employ this category descriptively and also in explanatory logic
  • Advances research that investigates the role of metaphor in empirical and discourse-based methodologies, thus building on results from other disciplines, notably linguistics and hermeneutic philosophy.

This innovative study will be of interest to students and researchers of politics, international relations and communication studies.
