Politics, media, and modern democracy : an international study of innovations in electoral campaigning and their consequences by David L Swanson( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This important new text brings together an outstanding group of international scholars to look at the current state of electoral politics around the world. Elements of the modern (or American) model of election campaigning have been adopted in many countries in recent yearsÑincluding the use of mass media, the personalization of campaigns, use of public opinion polls, and a general professionalization of campaignsÑand conditions would seem to favor the spread of that model. Contributors to this volume, from established democracies, new and restored democracies, and democracies facing destabili
The 35 articles of impeachment and the case for prosecuting George W. Bush by Dennis J Kucinich( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Several books have argued a hypothetical case for impeaching George W. Bush, but Congressman Dennis Kucinich grabbed the bull by the horns and put forward 35 Articles of Impeachment before Congress in June 2008. This book presents all of Kucinich & rsquo;s Articles along with supplementary material that cannot be found in the Congressional Record. We learn from investigator David Swanson (who assisted Kucinich with his Articles of Impeachment) that when George Bush and his cabinet leave office, the case for his impeachment is still necessary and possible, and the case for the prosecution of his crimes remains quite open. For this book, Dennis Kucinich provides a new foreword and David Swanson discusses a number of other prosecutable crimes that didn & rsquo;t make Kucinich & rsquo;s final cut. Federal prosecutor and author Elizabeth de la Vega (United States v. George W. Bush et al.) contributes an annotated list of criminal violations in the Articles. Vincent Bugliosi & rsquo;s best-sellingThe Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murderaddresses only one of Bush & rsquo;s crimes, while Dennis Kucinich & rsquo;s35 Articles of Impeachmentfully opens the can of worms, proving a case against dozens of executive crimes. Dennis Kucinichis the former mayor of Cleveland and has represented the Tenth District of Ohio for the United States House of Representatives since 1996. He was also a candidate for the Democratic nominee for president in the 2004 and 2008 elections

Some Theoretic Approaches to the Emerging Study of Political Communication: A Critical Assessment by David L Swanson( Book )

2 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper assesses the state of political communication as an emerging multidisciplinary effort and discusses two major varieties of political communication theory and research. The first section of the paper discusses the "effects" research tradition in mass and political communication, examines the impact of critiques of this position, and disucsses the manner in which the effects tradition is prepetuated in some current research. The second section characterizes the uses and gratifications approach as an alternative to the effects position, describes its advantages and difficulties, and evaluates its usefulness as the new political communication paradigm. The final section of the paper discusses two priorities in research and theory development for the future. These two priorities include the importance of conceptual analysis, and perceptual and interpretive processes. (Ts)

Campaign '76: What We Need to Know by David L Swanson( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Research in the field of political communication has traditionally reflected a behavioral approach which has focused largely on the influence of mass communication on the public's political behavior. The role of the individual in selecting, interpreting, and processing political information has received significantly less attention. The descriptive survey and experimental data of the behaviorist paradigm can describe some correlations within the range of all political behavior, but behaviorism has not explained the individual as a single processor of information. In the future, research theory in political communication should be directed toward a phenomenological or functional approach in which man is perceived as an active rather than a passive agent. Whereas the behavioral approach describes how individuals are affected by their environment, a phenomenological methodology attempts to investigate and explain how individuals react to their environment and why particular attributes of individuals are related to communication behavior patterns.

Kind world, cruel world, friends and heroes : a generic analysis of television police drama and situation comedy, 1982-1992 by Ivy L Glennon( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Significant elements of narrative clearly recur in television programs. They do so within a number of recognizable generic patterns which not only create narrative coherence but also advocate particular principles of social organization and practice within the context of the program--i.e., views of how social institutions do and should work and of how persons do and should act to promote a desirable society. These social principles entail value laden beliefs (e.g., individual accomplishment is important), support general social policies (e.g., the legal system should protect individual rights to privacy), and advocate specific individual behavior (e.g., an individual should not use other persons' property without permission). Thus any generic narrative television program makes an argument that starts with what is wrong or right with society and ends by advocating principles which uphold the workable and address the unworkable elements of society. Furthermore, for a narrative television program to be meaningful, viewers must understand the social principles--i.e., the argument--demonstrated in the program. This dissertation analyzes the arguments made by two of the most prevalent forms of television narrative: situation comedies and police dramas. It begins by reviewing literature on the meaning of television in Chapter 1, then by analyzing literature on the theory of genre in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 delineates narrative genre for the purposes of assessing television programs' arguments and social principles. Chapter 4 defines the situation comedy genre using examples from 14 of the most popular situation comedies in the decade 1982-1992. Chapter 4 concludes with a detailed generic analysis with a representative text--an episode of the wildly popular program Cheers. Chapter 5 defines the police drama genre using examples from the five most popular police dramas of 1982-1992, concluding with a detailed analysis of an episode of Cagney and Lacey. Chapter 6 assesses the utility of basing television textual analysis on this notion of genre and suggests uses for this approach in such areas as social scientific effects research, critical ideological textual analyses, and feminist television critique. The dissertation concludes that ultimately this approach has potential for determining an important over-looked level of audiences' understanding of television messages
