""Deeds Done in Words" is an impressive piece of work. It is the first attempt to identify and assess the principal "genres" of rhetoric, and to interpret the panoply of those genres in terms of the needs of, and the needs for, ritual in American politics." Jeffrey Tulis, author of "The Rhetorical Presidency"""Deeds Done in Words" is a thoughtful survey of how a democracy uses language to transact its business. Based on an enlivened understanding of genre theory and on numerous pieces of original criticism, Campbell and Jamieson vividly show how central public discourse has become the lifeblood of the American polity." Roderick Hart, author of "The Sound of Leadership""The rhetoric that issues from the White House is becoming an ever more salient part of what the presidency means and does. This acute inquiry provides a great many insights into the forms, meanings, and functions of presidential discourse. It is an enlightening contribution to our understanding of American politics." Murray Edelman, author of "Constructing the Political Spectacle""
