The campaign of 1896 gave the public one of the most dramatic and interesting battles of political oratory in American history, even though, ironically, its issues faded quickly into insignificance after the election. This book traces the campaign to show the development of William Jennings Bryan's rhetoric and the stability of William McKinley's.

WILLIAM D. HARPINE, who holds a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois, is a professor of communications at the University of South Carolina - Aiken.
"... demolishes the images of McKinley as a vapid politician and Bryan as a rube. [Harpine's] study of the 1896 presidential campaign instead depicts two sophisticated and resourceful opponents who employ strategies of persuasion that are sometimes novel and at other times as old as those used by ancient Greek orators." - Philip Abbott, Wayne State University"
