Critical Discourse Studies (CDS) is an exciting research enterprise in which scholars are concerned with the discursive reproduction of power and inequality. However, researchers in CDS are increasingly recognising the need to investigate the cognitive dimensions of discourse and context if they want to fully account for any connection between language, legitimisation and social action. This book presents a collection of papers in CDS concerned with various ideological discourses. Analyses are firmly rooted in linguistics and cognition constitutes a major focus of attention. The chapters, which are written by prominent researchers in CDS, come from a broad range of theoretical perspectives spanning pragmatics, cognitive psychology and cognitive linguistics. The book is essential reading for anyone working at the cutting edge of CDS and especially for those wishing to explore the central place that cognition must surely hold in the relationship between discourse and society.

Notes on contributors
“Christopher Hart’s edited collection is an important step forward in combining the cognitive turn and the critical turn in the study of human discourse. The rich developments that have been seen in this area over recent decades are ripe for scrutiny and consolidation. In this volume leading scholars in overlapping areas of enquiry show how discourse analysis, linguistics, cognitive science and social theory may be brought together in an enriched paradigm for critical studies.”
“The book is essential reading for anyone working at the cutting edge of CDS and especially for those wishing to explore the central place that cognition must surely hold in the relationship between discourse and society.”
“The papers in this volume offer new frameworks of critical discourse research from a broad cognitive perspective. [...] Without doubt, this volume can be used as a good reference for students and researchers who are interested in the theory and practice of CDS and cognitive linguistics.”
“CDA, and by extension CDS generally, is well served by this new collection of nine chapters, which make use of advances in the cognitive sciences to address both contextual and cognitive factors affecting language in use.”
