Riassunto: 2008 Outstanding Book Award, presented by the Political Communication Division of the National Communication Association
Traces the shifts in presidential discourse on terrorism since World War II.
Dal retro di copertina:
The topic of terrorism has evolved into an ideological marker of American culture, one that has fundamentally altered the relationship between the three branches of government, between the government and the people, and between America and countries abroad. In the Name of Terrorism describes and analyzes the public communication strategies presidents have deployed to discuss terrorism since the end of World War II. Drawing upon internal administration documents, memoirs, and public papers, Carol K. Winkler uncovers how presidents have capitalized on public perceptions of the terrorist threat, misrepresented actual terrorist events, and used the term "terrorism" to influence electoral outcomes both at home and abroad. Perhaps more importantly, she explains their motivations for doing so, and critically discusses the moral and political implications of the present range of narratives used to present terrorism to the public.
"Winkler's excellent study shows how presidential rhetoric changes in response to objective events, and the ways that different presidential ideologies shape those events through the kinds of narrative they employ." -- Perspectives on Politics
"Winkler demonstrates how presidents craft effective public appeals--through a process of trial and error, and artistry and deceit--that blend ideological and other political motives with continued adaptation to both the stream of events and the rhetorical environment. After reading this work, one can see how the meaning and rhetorical power of `terrorism' has developed over the past several decades through presidential deployment of the term." -- Robert Hariman, author of Political Style: The Artistry of Power
"Winkler addresses an important topic that could not be more timely.... One can see how the current administration's war on terrorism emerges from and advances the basic trajectory of previous presidential accounts" -- Robert L. Ivie, author of Democracy and America's War on Terror
