In this book, Robert Hariman demonstrates how matters of style—of diction, manners, sensibility, decor, and charisma—influence politics. In critical studies of classic texts, Hariman identifies four dominant political styles. The realist style, as found in Machiavelli's The Prince, creates a world of sheer power, constant calculation, and emotional control; this style is the common sense of modern political science. The courtly style, depicted in Kapuscinski's The Emperor, is characterized by high decorousness, hierarchies, and fixation on the body of the sovereign; this style infuses mass media coverage of the American presidency. The republican style, reflected in Cicero's letters to Atticus, promotes the art of oratory, consensus, and civility; it informs our ideal of democratic conversation. The bureaucratic style, as captured in Kafka's The Castle, emphasizes institutional procedures, official character, and the priority of writing; this style structures everday life. Hariman looks at effective political artistry in figures from antiquity to modern politicians such as Vaclav Havel, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton. He discusses the crises to which each style is susceptible, as well as the social and moral consequences of each style's success.

Popular movies can be surprisingly smart about politics - from the portentous politics of state or war, to the grassroots, everyday politics of family, romance, business, church and school. Politics in Popular Movies analyses the politics in many well-known films across four popular genres: horror, war, thriller and science fiction. The book's aims are to appreciate specific movies and their shared forms, to understand their political engagements and to provoke some insightful conversations. The means are loosely related 'film takes' that venture ambitious, playful and engaging arguments on political styles encouraged by recent films. Politics in Popular Movies shows how conspiracy films expose oppressive systems; it explores how various thrillers prefigured American experiences of 9/11 and shaped aspects of the War on Terror; how some horror films embrace new media, while others use ultra-violence to spur political action; it argues that a popular genre is emerging to examine non-linear politics of globalisation, terrorism and more. Finally it analyses the ways in which sci-fi movies reflect populist politics from the Occupy and Tea Party movements, rethink the political foundations of current societies and even remake our cultural images of the future.

In an era when the value of the humanities and qualitative inquiry has been questioned in academia and beyond, Making the Case is an engaging and timely collection that brings together a veritable who’s who of public address scholars to illustrate the power of case-based scholarly argument and to demonstrate how critical inquiry into a specific moment speaks to general contexts and theories. Providing both a theoretical framework and a wealth of historically situated texts, Making the Case spans from Homeric Greece to twenty-first-century America. The authors examine the dynamic interplay of texts and their concomitant rhetorical situations by drawing on a number of case studies, including controversial constitutional arguments put forward by activists and presidents in the nineteenth century, inventive economic pivots by Franklin Roosevelt and Alan Greenspan, and the rhetorical trajectory and method of Barack Obama.

Presidents And The People

When the American president cannot get his way with Congress on something of great importance to him, he often appeals directly to the American people. This kind of appeal has been criticized as an unconstitutional means of subverting the power balance intended by the Constitution. In this volume, Melvin C. Laracey challenges the notion that direct appeals are either recent or unconstitutional. Presidents and the People offers the first comprehensive study of presidential communication with the public on policy matters and of attitudes toward going public. Laracey demonstrates that the practice did not begin with Roosevelt's Fireside Chats, Kennedy's televised press conferences, or Bill Clinton's town meetings. Rather, historically, it has included earlier media such as presidentially sponsored newspapers. Tracing the sometimes thinly veiled exercise of public appeals through such newspapers, Laracey concludes that "going public is not a modern manifestation, but rather the modern triumph of one view of the proper place of the presidency in the constitutional order."

Während die meisten Bücher über Kreativität und erfolgreiche Lebensführung schnelle und leicht verdauliche Antworten liefern, setzt der Innovationsforscher Warren Berger ganz woanders an: bei den Fragen. Berger hat die Strategien der kreativsten Köpfe aus Wirtschaft und Wissenschaft, darunter Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos und Larry Page, untersucht und festgestellt, dass sie alle eine besondere Fähigkeit auszeichnet - die richtigen Fragen zu stellen. Was wir als Kinder intuitiv tun, nämlich die Welt permanent in Frage zu stellen, um sie zu begreifen, treibt uns das Erziehungssystem aus und trimmt uns auf Antworten. Dabei kommt es heute mehr denn je darauf an, diese Fähigkeit wiederzubeleben, um zu kreativen Lösungen zu gelangen. Anhand von sechzig erstaunlichen Geschichten zeigt Berger, auf welche Weise die richtige Fragestellung den kreativen Prozess antreibt. Nur wenn wir unsere eingeübten Annahmen in Zweifel ziehen, wenn wir lernen, uns vertraute Situationen so zu betrachten, als wären sie neu, kann es gelingen, die richtigen Lösungen zu finden. Ein lebhaft und humorvoll geschriebenes und dennoch hoch fundiertes Buch, mit dem wir lernen, die Welt – und uns selbst – neu zu betrachten.
