A Mild Plea for Assistance

December 29, 2007

As many readers of The Duck may know I am currently on hiatus working full time and writing my dissertation–a handful to say the least.

To that end, can anyone recommend any books or articles that do a good job of summarizing the literature on presidential rhetoric and its influence on public opinion? I am looking for literature on this topic generally, on presidential influence on foreign policy as well as presidential approval ratings.

Many thanks in advance!
