The Rhetoric of Genocide : Death as a Text, Paperback / softback Book

The Rhetoric of Genocide : Death as a Text Paperback / softback

Part of the Lexington Studies in Political Communication series

Paperback / softback


Genocide represents one of the deadliest scourges of the human experience.

Communication practices provide the key missing ingredient toward preventing and ending this intensely symbolic activity.

The Rhetoric of Genocide: Death as a Text reveals how strategic communication silences make this tragedy probable, and how a greater social ethic for communication openness repels and ends this great evil.

Careful analysis of practical historical figures, such as the great debater James Farmer Jr., along with empirical policy successes in places such as Liberia provide a communication-based template for ridding the world of genocide in the twenty-first century.
