Mary E. Stuckey
SUNY Press, Jan 1, 1996 - Political Science - 236 pages
Focusing on theoretical and methodological insight, this book brings together scholars from a variety of fields whose research is guided by diverse analytical approaches. Instead of focusing on what divides scholars, the authors explore areas of intellectual community, building a more systematic and rigorous understanding of political communication. By broadening and deepening understanding of the field, this book provides insight into political processes that would otherwise be lacking.
