Promotional Information

"The importance of this book can be seen in the way that it brings together a focus on language (and conceptual metaphors in particular) and politics and applies feminist research questions and methodologies in thinking through this relationship. Language is a tool involved in knowledge production and thus political action, thus it should be analyzed cautiously which is precisely what the contributors of this book manage to do." - International Feminist Journal of Politics "As a whole, this volume is a welcome contribution to the study of gender and metaphor use, and more generally, to the study of metaphor in discourse. This volume will interest students and researchers with academic backgrounds as diverse as in discourse analysis, gender studies, conceptual metaphor, political communication and media studies." - Discourse and Communication
