Series Title: Multilingual Matters
Description:

Since 1989, Europe’s eastern rim has been in constant flux. This collection
focuses on how political and economic transformations have triggered
redefinitions of cultural identity. Using discursive modes of identity
construction (deconstruction, reconstruction, reformulation, and invention)
the book focuses on the creation of opposition to old and new 'outsiders'
and 'insiders' in Europe. The linguistic study of discourse elements in
connection with an exploration of the significance of metaphors in
anchoring individual and collective identity is innovative and allows for a
unique analysis of public discourse in Europe.
