The Review as Art and Communication
The Review as Art and Communication not only presents the idea that book reviews, record reviews, theatrical reviews and reviews of any genre can be substantive essays on their own-expounding and elaborating on the concepts and ideas of the original material critiqued - but it also explores the shelf-life of the review: the odd phenomenon that just like other forms of art some stand the test-of-time, and some do not.

The intent was to find ways to balance the budget (before the Clinton administration did so). The result was that many media outlets reported Concord’s press releases as though they were legitimate news.

emphasis on the principles of the Declaration of Independence were not a ringing affirmation of popular consent. Lincoln supported “conservative nationalism” over “state and individual liberties,” Klingaman sniffs, not recognizing that “state liberties” play no part in government by consent, and failing also to recognize that the Confederate position explicitly rejected individual liberties, and sought to place “state liberties” above all else.
