The Politics of Subjectivity in American Foreign Policy DiscoursesTy Solomon 2015
Through empirical case studies of the affective resonances of the war on terror and the rise and fall of neoconservative influence in American foreign policy, Solomon offers a unique way to think about the politics of identity as the construction of "common sense" powerfully underpinned by affective investments. He provides both a fuller understanding of the emotional appeal of political rhetoric in general and, specifically, a provocative explanation of the reasons for the reception of particular U.S. foreign policy rhetoric that shifted Americans' attitudes toward neoconservative foreign policy in the 1990s and shaped the post-9/11 "war on terror."
