  • Truman's Whistle-stop Campaign

    Steven R Goldzwig

Recensioner i media

"Professors Goldzwig and Dionisopoulos provide here one of the strongest contributions yet to the Great American Orators Series. While previous research in the vast literature on Kennedy consistently mentions JFK's oratorical greatness, they note, no extant scholarship either delineates the dimensions of his rhetorical skill or explicates the link between public discourse and policy making during his presidency. The authors promise such an enterprise, and they deliver on that promise. This is an excellent book in support of an original thesis. The authors' case is compellingly argued, persuasively documented, and clearly written."-Professor David Henry California Polytechnic State University "An excellent introduction and overview of the rhetoric of Kennedy. The authors concentrate on major rhetorical events in the administration...and render reasoned judgements based on intensive research."- Theodore O. Windt Professor of Communication University of Pittsburgh "This important study should be required reading for all students of Cold War rhetoric, presidential discourse, and the Kennedy administration. Drawing on primary sources, the authors paint a chilling picture of the uses and abuses of rhetoric at the highest levels of government. More than a paean to eloquence, this book is a meditation on our long national self-imprisonment within the prison-house of language, imagery, and cultural memory."- Martin J. Medhurst Texas A&M University
