Summary
  • "This book examines how, in the current political climate, Americans find it difficult to discuss civic issues frankly and openly with one another. Because America is dominated by two powerful discourses - liberalism and Christian fundamentalism, each of which paints a very different picture of America and its citizens' responsibilities toward their country - there is little common ground, and hence Americans avoid disagreement for fear of giving offence."
  • "Sharon Crowley investigates the cultural factors that lead to the formation of beliefs, and how beliefs can develop into densely articulated systems and political activism. She underscores the urgency of developing a civil discourse, and through a review of historic rhetoric and its modern application, provides a foundation for such a discourse."--Jacket
