The volume considers politics as cooperative group action and takes the position that forms of government can be posited on a continuum with endpoints where governance is shared, and where hegemony dictates, ranging from politics as interaction to politics as imposition. Similarly, dialogue and dialogic action can be superimposed on the same continuum lying between truly collaborative where co-participants exchange ideas in a cooperative manner and dominated by an absolute position where dialogue proceeds along prescribed paths. The chapters address the continuum between these endpoints and present illuminating and persuasive analyses of dialogue in politics, covering motions of support, the relationship between politics and the press, interviews, debates, discussion forums and multimodal media analyses across different discourse domains and different cultural contexts from Africa to the Middle East, and from the United States to Europe.

“The variety of methodologies used, from purely textual to discursive and multimodal, ensures that readers, familiar or not with the analysis of dialogue and/or political discourse, will find something at their level of interest.”
“The outstanding feature of this book is its discussion of the two interaction perspectives, politics as interaction and politics as imposition. [...] In general this book will be of great interest for researchers in political discourse studies.”
