“Fry offers a cohesive example of how a certain sort of very powerful and pervasive rhetoric works, and for the educated lay audience it will certainly prove a useful book in describing one of the most impactful forms of political speech today.” (Leslie Dorrough Smith, Journal of Church and State, Vol. 57, Autumn, 2015)
