Knowing the President: The Dialogic Evolution of the Campaign History.
Murphy, John M.
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v84 n1 p23-40 Feb 1998
Traces development of the campaign history genre by exploring two key exemplars: T. White's "The Making of the President 1960" and R.B. Cramer's "What It Takes: The Way to the White House." Reveals that the books make sense of the election, develop a reciprocal relationship between private man and public figure, and create an authoritarian reading of the election. (SR)
