"More Rain and Less Thunder": Substitute Vocabularies, Richard Nixon, and the Construction of Political Reality.
Morris, Richard; Stuckey, Mary E.
Communication Monographs, v64 n2 p140-60 Jun 1997
Sketches a key mechanism called "Substitute Vocabularies" whereby practitioners of democracies seek to reconcile contradictions between democratic political principle and repressive political action. Illustrates this by identifying the Richard Nixon administration's political principles regarding Native Americans as articulated in Nixon's speeches. Examines the Nixon administration's efforts to reconcile their explicitly articulated principles and their subsequent practices. (SR)
