Tales of the State: Narrative in Contemporary U.S. Politics and Public Policy

Framsida
Sanford Schram, Sanford F. Schram, Philip T. Neisser
Rowman & Littlefield, 1997 - 270 sidor
The relationship between politics and storytelling is one with a well-established lineage, but public policy analysis has only recently begun to develop its own appreciation of the power of narrative to explain everything from political traditions to cyberspace. This unique collection of original essays helps further that project by surveying stories of and about all kinds of American politics—from welfare, race, and immigration; to workfare, jobs, and education; to gay rights, national security, and the American Dream in an age of economic globalization.
