Writing JFK: Presidential Rhetoric and the Press in the Bay of Pigs Crisis
In this highly original and intriguing work, the Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of Rhetoric at Pennsylvania State University examines in insightful detail the two speeches and the press conference held by President John F. Kennedy in the aftermath of the Bay of Pigs disaster in 1961. The full texts of all three are included, to which is added the author’s analysis of a prime example of what has come to be known today as “spin control.” In so doing, he casts light not only on Kennedy and his presidency but also on the “enormous power of the presidency to compel press restraint and to command the power of publicity.” More ...

Kartography
From www.barnesandnoble.com: "The globe spins. Mountain ranges skim my fingers; there is static above the Arabian Sea. Pakistan is split in two, but undivided. This world is out of date. Rain outside. If it reaches Karachi, the waves will swell further. The airport, though, is inland. From there to here is no distance at all if you look at the map of the world. But distance is not about miles and kilometres, it is about fear. Who said that? Someone who wasn't married to a pilot, I'd guess. I unscrew a jar of ink. Scent of smudged words and metal fills the air. Do all tentacled creatures produce ink, Raheen? Does the cuttlefish? Can you write on the waves with cuttleink?

And yes, those are shoulder pads stitched into my shirt." More ...
