Abstract

In The Art of Political Storytelling: Why Stories Win Votes in Post-Truth Politics, Philip Seargeant makes the case that the basic archetypal structures of narrative are integral to political processes, including the ways that sense is constructed in public debate. Combining a sound and rigorous academic argument with a clear and accessible style, this book is a valuable dissection of current political realities and a manual for those engaging in or analysing politics in the contemporary post-truth era, recommends Ignas Kalpokas. The Art of Political Storytelling: Why Stories Win Votes in Post-Truth Politics. Philip Seargeant. Bloomsbury. 2020.
