Reagan and the Nuclear Freeze: "Stars Wars" as a Rhetorical Strategy.
Bjork, Rebecca S.
Journal of the American Forensic Association, v24 n3 p181-92 Win 1988
Analyzes the interaction between nuclear freeze activists and proponents of a Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). Argues that SDI strengthens Reagan's rhetorical position concerning nuclear weapons policy because it reduces the argumentative ground of the freeze movement by envisioning a defensive weapons system that would nullify nuclear weapons.
