              This book uses a range of different real text samples to explore how wealth inequality has been portrayed in the British media in the decades between the Second World War and the present day. Using a Corpus-Assisted Discourse Studies framework, chapters present an historical over...view to reveal how mass media discourse has helped make increased wealth inequality look perfectly normal. Print, radio and online media sources are interrogated by a combined methodology drawing from critical discourse analysis, critical stylistics and corpus linguistics in order to examine the influence of media on economic policies and its role in making Britain a less egalitarian society. Covering topics such as Second World War propaganda, the 'Change4Life' anti-obesity campaign, the Football Lads Alliance (FLA) Twitter movement and UK General Elections, The Discursive Construction of Economic Inequality will be of value to any linguist interested in economic inequality and mass media.

              This book analyses diverse public discourses to investigate how wealth inequality has been portrayed in the British media from the time of the Second World War to the present day. Using a variety of corpus-assisted methods of discourse analysis, chapters present an historicized p...erspective on how the mass media have helped to make sharply increased wealth inequality seem perfectly normal. Print, radio and online media sources are interrogated using methodologies grounded in critical discourse analysis, critical stylistics and corpus linguistics in order to examine the influence of the media on the British electorate, who have passively consented to the emergence of an even less egalitarian Britain. Covering topics such as Second World War propaganda, the 'Change4Life' anti-obesity campaign and newspaper, parliamentary and TV news programme attitudes to poverty and austerity, this book will be of value to all those interested in the mass media's contribution to the entrenched inequality in modern Britain.
