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

14 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 424 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 destabilizing pressure, examine the extent to which electoral politics in their countries have been affected by the emergence of high-tech professional campaigns. Countries examined provide a cross-section of today's democracies, including the United States, Britain, Sweden, Germany, Russia, Poland, Spain, Israel, Italy, Argentina, and Venezuela. The work will be of interest to scholars and students alike in political communication, political parties and elections, and comparative politics
The 35 articles of impeachment and the case for prosecuting George W. Bush by Dennis J Kucinich( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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-selling The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder addresses only one of Bush & rsquo;s crimes, while Dennis Kucinich & rsquo;s 35 Articles of Impeachment fully opens the can of worms, proving a case against dozens of executive crimes. Dennis Kucinich is 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 PoliticalCommunication: A Critical Assessment by David L Swanson( Book )

2 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 3 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)

When the world outlawed war by David Swanson( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

How people in the United States and around the world worked to abolish war as a legitimate act of state policy and won in 1928, outlawing war with a treaty, the Kellogg-Briand Pact, that is still on the books. Swanson's account of the successful work of those who came before us to insist that war be outlawed points us toward new ways of thinking about both war and political activism

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