Discourse and Discriminationis a study of how racism, anti-semitism and ethnicism are reflected in discourse. Through the analysis of an impressive variety of documents, Reisigl and Wodak present detailed case studies of anti-semitism, institutional racism and political xenophobia in Austria. Chapters include: * "Race", Racism and Discourse * The linguistic and rhetorical analysis of racism and anti-semitism * Discourses of silence: antisemitic discourse in post-war Austria * Necessary measures against foreigners? The petition "Austria first 1993" * The Political Administration of Social Exclusion: A discourse analysis of Authorities' Refusals of residence permits for aliens. The book provides a survey of different discourse analysis approaches, analysing the strengths and weaknesses of each, and concludes with the authors' own model of Critical Discourse Analysis.
