American Rhetorical Construction of the Iranian Nuclear Threat
Before World War III
The book points out, using rhetorical theory and discourse analysis, the conditions that lent credibility to the Bush administration’s position by examining the arguments Bush and his political surrogates put forward, and the discourse strategies that influenced which ideas gained salience and which were downplayed. Political communication and Foucault’s theory of governmentality are brought in to articulate the implications regarding the influence, importance and expansion of executive power.
