Postmodern Political Communication: The Fringe Challenges the Center


Analyses of political dialog have traditionally concentrated on structure of government or social movements. In its examination of the marginal "fringe" groups struggling to secure power, this volume broadens our conception of political behavior and places new emphasis on the generation and invention of politics. The volume's contributors examine discourse of deviant, oppressed, and powerless groups from the point of view of empowerment; that is, how do such outsider groups engage the center and how are they able to use mass media to gain political power?
