The Rhetoric of (Re)Unification presents a series of critical analyses of the political rhetoric of East and West German newspapers that relate directly to the public attitudes toward reunification. These analyses offer insights into how mass media represents political developments in light of contrasting political ideologies and purposes. By using rhetoric and hermeneutics as methods of inquiry, this book explores how public discourse advanced social emancipation.
