Persuasion

"The American Art of Persuasion" is the headline the editors of the New York Sun give Martha Bayles’ review of Carnes Lord’s new book on "strategic communications." Her first sentence reads: "Some years ago, Carnes Lord wrote an essay about Aristotle’s view of rhetoric as a hybrid activity involving both deception and truth telling."

Aristotle and US public diplomacy. What’s not to like?
