A Look Inside
Full Text Reviews
Appeared in Choice on 1985-12:
Written in the ponderous style of a doctoral dissertation, this report of a highly specialized subject will be of interest to few political or other social scientists. After analyzing vocalizations of US Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon during selected international crises, the authors' major conclusions include the observations that ``Johnson's stress levels fluctuated according to the substantive topics of his speech'' and that ``Nixon appeared to be more even tempered and more psychophysiologically balanced'' than Kennedy or Johnson. Nevertheless, the authors are pioneering in research that may be of interest to scholars in speech. Recommended only for libraries serving doctoral programs in speech or communication. Extensive appendixes.-D.J. Hanson, SUNY College at Potsdam
