The Rhetorical Presidency of George H. W. Bush
Martin J. Medhurst
Texas A&M University Press, 2006 - Communication in politics - 220 pages
Here, the contributors suggest how embracing the art of rhetoric might have allowed Bush to respond more successfully to the challenges of his presidency. Drawing on the resources of the Bush Presidential library and interviews with some of his White House aides, they explore such issues as the first Gulf War, the fall of the Berlin wall, Bush's environmental stance, and the 1992 re-election campaign.
