A Rhetoric of the People free pdf Since 1979, when the West German public elected several of their party members to representative seats in the Bundestag, the Greens (Die Grunen) have been a political force to be reckoned with. "A Rhetoric of the People" studies how the German Greens have evolved a rhetorical style that is characteristic of a social movement, voicing citizen dissatisfaction with representative democracy and the insensitive decision-making of traditional political and economic structures. Authors Coleman and Coleman discuss the Greens as part of a significant global environmental movement, and as a voice which advocates a "new politics" based on the key notions of ecology, equal rights, grassroots democracy, self-determination, Third World concerns and peace. "A Rhetoric of the People" concentrates on the Green's rhetorical vision as presented in their public utterances and political platforms. To furnish a context for appreciating the Greens' persuasive efforts, the authors examine "green" argumentative stances in general, then present a brief review of the global environmental movement and a discussion of the evolution of the German Green Party. What follows is essentially a descriptive study that highlights the verbal discourse of the Greens as revealed in their official party statements. The authors conclude by exploring some of the issues and and problems presently facing the Greens, and contemplating the future of the party. The book is recommended for sociologists, political, scientists, environmentalists and communications scholars.
