"Toys of Desperation"--Suicide as Protest Rhetoric.
Jorgensen-Earp, Cheryl R.
Southern Speech Communication Journal, v53 n1 p80-96 Fall 1987
Examines the act of protest suicide as a form of rhetoric, and studies three representative cases of protest suicide for insight into the act. Claims that viewing protest suicide as a form of "symbolic inducement," reveals it to be a rhetorical act whose motivation, form, and impact can be understood. (SKC)
