About the Author:

Anthony R. DiMaggio received his PhD in political communication from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is the author of several books, including The Rise of the Tea Party: Political Discontent and Corporate Media in the Age of Obama.

Review:

“Political scientist Anthony DiMaggio is one of the most astute analysts of American media ... I cannot recommend this book enough ... On every topic I came away a more informed citizen, able to discuss the relevant evidence around U.S. foreign policy in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Iran and the Arab Spring.” ― Andrew Smolski, Counterpunch

Selling War, Selling Hope is an innovative project that pushes the fields of political science, political communication, public opinion, and presidential rhetoric into new and exciting directions. This book is essential reading.” ― Mark Major, author of The Unilateral Presidency and the News Media: The Politics of Framing Executive Power

“This eye-opening exposition offers a radical new conclusion to the debate over why Americans oppose wars: Americans oppose particular wars for moral reasons. By capturing the wide range of presidential rhetoric from fear to hope, DiMaggio documents the depths plumbed by political and other elites to manipulate the American public to support the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. In order to counteract American citizens’ moral opposition to war, political elites manipulate citizens’ fears into support for war by giving them hope, but the policies they choose, more often than not, lead to more war and reason for fear which creates a vicious cycle: fear―hope―war. The challenge we face is to break through the noise and the manipulation of political, economic, and military elites. DiMaggio offers us a way to see clearly.” ― Amentahru Wahlrab, University of Texas at Tyler
