About this title


Hahn, Dan F.

From the Inside Flap:

"Students gave it excellent reviews -- almost unheard of for a textbook....It provides a good integration of communication and politics; it is very accessible, yet not simple.It does a good job of showing how the media are intertwined with politics and of providing students with a methodology for assessing candidates."
Denise Bostdorff, College of Wooster

"Students love the book. [They] appreciate the writing style and the clarity of ideas....[Especially valuable is] the emphasis on citizenship and developing awareness (and, in turn, skills ) in interpreting and evaluating political rhetoric."
Donna M. Kowal, SUNY Brockport

"Excellent general coverage of the range of political communication; well organized; attractively written."
Robert J. Doolittle, University of Tulsa

"Good discussion of rhetorical perspective (especially metaphors)."
Janis Edwards, Western Illinois University

"I like the sequence and pattern of organization.... [The] emphasis on rhetoric is significant. Use of Burke skillful and very teachable!"
Linda Hobgood, University of Richmond

"It offers a rhetorical and philosophical approach to the study of politics and communication."
Pierre Rodgers, Morgan State University

"Chapters 1 - 4 present a useful approach to analyzing political communication."
Laurinda Porter, St. Cloud State University

"[It covers] a wide range of interesting topics."
Philip Voight, Gustavus Adolphus College

"Easy to read . . . good content."
James L. Heflin, Cameron University

"Very helpful, especially on language."
Jill Schmid, Willamette University

Additional comments on the first edition:
"Overall, this is an excellent book for Political Communication. [It] is clearly focused, beginning with fundamental terms for understanding political communication and progressing from these fundamentals to more sophisticated topics, thereby easing the student along the way."
Theodore O. Windt, University of Pittsburgh

"I am very much impressed with Hahn's knowledge of language and rhetoric. His ability to cogently frame a concept and then provide real-life, real-time examples is also impressive."
Sidney A. Kraus, Cleveland State University

"I found this to be an interesting and informative work."
Thomas A. Hollihan, University of Southern California

"It talks about concepts in political communication in ways that are accessible to those who are less sophisticated about politics."
Darin Klein, Georgia State University

"It would enrich my course by providing a rather neat connecting theme of ideological conflict as well as broadening its scope with a more detailed treatment of the roles language and media play in the political arena."
Moya Ann Ball, Trinity University

"The book would provide a strong background for my students. It casts the political process as something larger than just the campaign (persuasive) aspect."
Dennis Alexander, University of Utah

"Exceptionally readable--a pleasure to read. Author is widely read, erudite in source material, weaving ideas together from history, literature, and many areas of communication."
Kathleen E. Kendall, University at Albany, State University of New York

"The extended attention to language is an especially welcome feature."
Kathleen J. Turner, Tulane University

"The primary strength of Hahn's book rests in its rhetorical emphasis--particularly in its concern with teaching `citizens' the critical skills necessary for survival in a democratic society....there is a deep, abiding need for the perspective Hahn offers."
Dale A. Bertelsen, Bloomsburg University

"I believe it will be a refreshing addition to our field."
John W. Smith, Ohio University
