The 1996 Presidential Campaign: A Communication Perspective

Synopsis

Political campaigns are highly complex and sophisticated communication events: communication of issues, images, social reality, and persons. They are essential exercises in the creation, re-creation, and transmission of "significant symbols" through human communication. The essays in this text examine the key elements in that process throughout the 1996 presidential campaign.
