Chi ama i libri sceglie Kobo e inMondadori. The Rhetoric of Reaction by Albert O. Or, get it for Kobo Super Points! He draws his examples from three successive waves of reactive thought that arose in response to the liberal ideas of the French Revolution and the Declaration of the Rights of Man, to democratization and the drive toward universal suffrage in the nineteenth century, and to the welfare state in our own century.


In each case he identifies three principal arguments invariably used–the theses of perversity, futility, and jeopardy. Finally, in a lightning turnabout, he shows that progressives are frequently apt to employ closely related rhetorical postures, which are as biased as their reactionary counterparts.
