The Controversy over President Reagan's Visit to Bitburg: Strategies of Definition and Redefinition.
Olson, Kathryn M.
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v75 n2 p129-51 May 1989
Examines transformation and transcendence as rhetorical strategies of definition and redefinition, in the controversy surrounding President Reagan's plan to visit the German war cemetery at Bitburg. Contrasts Reagan's scientistic perspective with his opponents' dramatistic perspective, and explores their clash in three dimensions: time, space, and judgment. (SR)
