With the help of critical discourse analysis (CDA), this book approaches Turkish politics from an interdisciplinary perspective in order to deepen our understanding of political power and discourse. This study re-conceptualizes discursive strategies as hegemonic projects and thirteen governmental speeches are analyzed accordingly. It also provides readers with a theoretical discussion on the nature of political discourse through references to deliberative, agonistic and critical realistic approaches.

“The study is strongly recommended to scholars interested in the analysis of political discourse and conflict, especially to those who opt for critical approaches.”
“Given its overall emancipatory baseline and cross-disciplinary pathways, this book, which is based on Küçükali's PhD, is well organized and empirically backed-up. Its value rests on linking the discursive analyses to the wider socio-political context and is expected to appeal to both novice and experienced discourse analysts alike.”
