Hammerback, John C.; Jensen, Richard J.
Western Journal of Speech Communication, v44 n3 p166-76 Sum 1980
Examines the role of discourse in the leadership of Cesar Chavez and Reies Tijerina in the Chicano movement. Demonstrates that their commitment to rhetorical discourse flowed not from their conviction about the innate power of words but from a deeper belief that God infused their words with an irresistible force.
