"The Power of Words offers a lively and insightful exploration of discursive politics, interweaving nuanced theoretical analysis with a rich historical narrative. It turns out that behind the popular slogan, 'Save the Whales!' and the decades of political maneuvering both for and against it, lies a fascinating story about the co-construction of discursive and material practices.
Charlotte Epstein has given us an outstanding case study about making meaning at the intersection of science, politics, economics, and ethics. This book should find a wide audience in international relations, environmental studies and the social studies of science."--Karen T. Litfin, Department of Political Science, University of Washington
