Defining the Enemy

Published: September 1, 2008, Author: JayTaber

In Defining the Enemy for the Post-Cold War World, Jason A. Edwards examines rhetorical devices used to characterize enemy agents and global chaos. As Edwards observes,

Most Americans have very little knowledge of the issues and threats that the United States faces in the international arena…Teaching reality to the American public involves telling it stories about distant countries, little known cultures, and abstract values…Using images of primitive savagery has a long history within the United States, primarily in portrayals of Native Americans.
