MEDIA REVIEWS
"One of this collection's strongest attributes is that it goes beyond analyses of political rhetoric. The essays treat politics within a broader cultural (and natural) environment that is itself constantly changing, and they discuss ways our language is adapting to fit this unprecedented role in a variety of specific situations. The essays are challenging, insightful, and interesting."--Curt Meine, author of "Aldo Leopold: His Life and Work."
