Democracy and Civil Rights: The Universalizing Influence of Public Argumentation.
Condit, Celeste Michelle
Communication Monographs, v54 n1 p1-18 Mar 1987
Examines American public discourse about civil rights in national magazines from 1939-1959, indicating three stages in the controversy: (1) a positive recharacterization of blacks, (2) an inclusion of blacks under the nation's ideographs, and (3) a final contest between segregationist and integrationist rhetorics. Discusses the potential for rhetorical analysis of social processes. (JD)
