Doublespeak by Matthew Pdf

This timely intervention exposes the euphemized language of the extreme right as a deceptive attempt to secure greater influence over public policy. Since the end of World War II, the extreme right has made strategic use of “doublespeak,” which apes the language of liberal democracy. Attentive observation and accurate recognition of these tactics means taking the extreme right’s deliberately crafted slogans, symbols, and themes seriously. These essays investigate the extreme right’s attempts at “repackaging” contemporary ultranationalism to make it more palatable to mainstream European and American tastes.

Brother Tariq by Caroline Fourest Pdf

Tariq Ramadan is a global phenomenon. A Swiss-born Muslim activist, he is the grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, the radical group credited with inspiring modern Islamic radicalism. Ramadan is fluent in English, French and Arabic. In Europe, he is the most quoted and circulated writer on Islam. His writings are a regular feature of major English-speaking newspapers, but his real message is revealed in his speeches to Muslim groups in France, Africa, and the Middle East. Caroline Fourest has carefully transcribed and translated those speeches and shows that Ramdan's ingenious rhetoric is a Trojan horse, fostering the anti-Semitic and anti-Christian values of fundamentalist Islam on its latest battlefield: Western civilization.

EdSpeak and Doubletalk by Diane Ravitch,Nancy E. Bailey Pdf

"While this glossary will be an indispensable dog-eared reference to terminology across the field of education for aspiring teachers and education leaders, and should be a required supplemental text for all introductory course, the value that Diane Ravitch, renowned spokesperson for public education and for the best possible education for all children, adds is that she addresses the real profit centered, and privatization drivers that lie behind so many organizations and models that have perverted the term "reform," and purport to care for students but in fact often harm or exploit them. a kind of whistleblower book on organizations, programs and practices that are not what they seem, often branded with positive promotional names, masking programs-for-profit, panacea programs with little real benefit to students, some, like "accountability," actually harmful to the most financially disadvantaged students through constant testing prep at the expense of learning. In Diane's words, "This book is not simply a glossary of easily defined terms that can be looked up on the Internet. It is a judgmental, evaluative appraisal of terms and organizations that would not be easily gleaned on the Internet. It guides readers through the thickets of jargon and hype that are often sales pitches to unwary consumers". It shines a light on the language related to groups and practices that are seriously endangering democratic public schools and the teaching profession"--

Tacitus, Suetonius, and Juvenal all figure in Bartsch's shrewd analysis of historical and literary responses to the brute facts of empire; even the Panegyricus of Pliny the Younger now appears as a reaction against the widespread awareness of dissimulation.

Words That Work by Dr. Frank Luntz Pdf

The nation's premier communications expert shares his wisdom on how the words we choose can change the course of business, of politics, and of life in this country In Words That Work, Luntz offers a behind-the-scenes look at how the tactical use of words and phrases affects what we buy, who we vote for, and even what we believe in. With chapters like "The Ten Rules of Successful Communication" and "The 21 Words and Phrases for the 21st Century," he examines how choosing the right words is essential. Nobody is in a better position to explain than Frank Luntz: He has used his knowledge of words to help more than two dozen Fortune 500 companies grow. Hell tell us why Rupert Murdoch's six-billion-dollar decision to buy DirectTV was smart because satellite was more cutting edge than "digital cable," and why pharmaceutical companies transitioned their message from "treatment" to "prevention" and "wellness." If you ever wanted to learn how to talk your way out of a traffic ticket or talk your way into a raise, this book's for you.
