Seducing America by Roderick P. Hart

Book Description

Roderick P Hart's Revised Edition of Seducing America is a revealing examination of how television's format of presenting politics has changed the way viewers act, vote and feel about politics in the United States. With a rigorous blend of rhetorical and statistical research, Hart asserts that while television makes viewers feel knowledgeable, important, informed and close to the political representatives, it disguises increasing apathy and inaction as voter turnouts decrease and a general dissatisfaction with the political system is expressed.
