"This book examines the uses and abuses of political communication in contemporary American society. It is about the ways that governments, politicians, journalists and media organization, terrorists, special interests, lobbyists, and other manipulate words, pictures and events, and one another to get what they want; about how and why that manipulation works; and about its consequences for our democratic society. Employing numerous anecdotes and examples and drawings upon the latest research and theories of communication and political science, the book is light in tone and a delight to read." --Jacket.
