Ritter, Kurt W.
Central States Speech Journal, v31 n3 p153-71 Fall 1980
Compares the ritual of the American presidential nomination acceptance speech to the rhetorical ritual of the Puritan jeremiad to discover both similarities and differences. Examines each as a means of interpreting the meaning of the past and unifying the audience around a shared vision of the future. (JMF)
