Ronald Reagan the Movie: And Other Episodes in Political Demonolo by Rogin, Michael Paul
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
In this collection of essays, political scientist Rogin postulates a demonological tradition in the mainstream of American politics. This demonology entails the "creation of monsters . . . by the inflation, stigmatization, and dehumanization of political foes" as a counter to feared subversion. Although the work's main thrust is aimed at Ronald Reagan, Rogin claims that political demonology has had a long existence, and he traces its history in several essays. The book's argument suffers from sweeping generalizations and from the essay format (all of the pieces except a summarizing chapter have, in some version, been published previously). Nevertheless, this is a provocative work suitable for academic and large public libraries.Steven D. Zink, Univ. of Nevada Lib., Reno
