This book is a collection of studies on political interaction in a variety of broadcast, namely news and current affairs programs, political interviews, audience participation programs and radio phone-ins. Following a growing scholarly interest in political discourses, dialogic forms of news production and media talk in general, a number of internationally acclaimed scholars investigate the discursive and interactional practices that give rise to the arena of public politics in contemporary society. Chapters span an array of cultural contexts, as diverse as Sweden, Greece, Belgium (Flanders), the U.K., Spain, Israel, the U.S.A., Australia and China. Authors combine an interest in discourse analysis and conversation analysis with different disciplinary orientations, such as linguistics, media and cultural studies, sociology, political science, and social psychology. The book uncovers current trends in media and political discourse, and will be of interest to both students and scholars of media discourse and politics.

“This is an important contribution to the growing body of work on the political news interview by leading international analysts of broadcast talk. Of particular interest is the attention paid to changes in the management of news talk over time and its cultural variations from one country to another. Highly recommended for all students of the discourses of news on radio and television.”
“The book is wide ranging in its cultural and geographic spread of broadcast talk involving politicians. Thus it provides great resources for those interested in analysing such talk in an intercultural context, which this book makes clear is useful not only for understanding material from ‘elsewhere’ but also for Anglo-American data. [...] This book is worth its price to have readily available these valuable resources for anyone interested in working on audio or video political interactions be they broadcast or online.”
