Pulp Politicsby Glenn W. Jr. Richardson
Pulp Politics argues that the stories of American politics have found their most vivid expression in campaign advertising. It is the central argument of this book that adopting the readily identifiable audiovisual conventions of popular culture is particularly attractive to candidates and communicators, and that analysts can benefit from a closer study of the audiovisual narratives of campaign advertising than scholars have engaged in. This edition features an entirely new chapter that addresses political advertising in a time of terror and includes discussion of more recent developments in political campaign communication such as blogs and viral videos.
