Her book, however, aims to inspire other historians to re-assess the merit of the FSLN actions. Christian’s criticisms are vastly unpopular but add a compelling contrast to the popular views of the FSLN. She says, “The Sandinista Front [FSLN] probably would have become a footnote to history had a moderate regime been able to assume power in Nicaragua before the end of 1978.”(373) Christian’s convictions on this topic clash with the views of most historians.

Bush that incited pathos among American voters. Comprised of only 8 still images and stern narration, the “Willie Horton” advertisement permanently changed the public perception of Michael Dukakis and was a significant factor in his political defeat.

Bush’s use of language in his television advertisements exemplifies Kenneth Burke’s theory of Terministic Screens and “Dramatistic” view of language.
