Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan

The Play of Political Culture, Emotion and Identity offers a uniquely ‘psycho-cultural’ perspective on the emotional dynamics of UK political culture. The book draws on theories and research in psychoanalysis, cultural and media studies and political sociology to explore the cultural and emotional processes that shape our relationship to politics in a media age. Against the backdrop of promotional, celebrity culture, it explores the flirtatious dynamics at play in a range of case studies, from Joanna Lumley’s Gurkha campaign, to Margaret Thatcher’s funeral, through to Nigel Farage and his appeal as a populist politican.
