Lyndon Johnson Redefines "Equal Opportunity": The Beginnings of Affirmative Action.
Zarefsky, David
Central States Speech Journal, v31 n2 p85-94 Sum 1980
Examines Lyndon Johnson's rhetoric in bringing about a shift in the concept of "equal opportunity" from nondiscrimination to affirmative action through the process of dissociation. Defines dissociation as separating a unitary concept into parts, identifying the less valued part, and reformulating the more valued part. (JMF)
