The battle on Terror Narrative analyzes 3 varieties of data--presidential speeches, U.S. media discourse, and concentration team interviews--to supply a longitudinal and holistic research of the formation, circulate, and contestation of the Bush administration's narrative in regards to the "war on terror." The narrative sustains, in Foucault's phrases, a "regime of fact" via putting limitations round what can meaningfully be stated and understood in regards to the topic. Adam Hodges illustrates that while social actors withstand the narrative and the coverage it involves, they applicable its language to be heard and understood. whereas this usually works to bolster the narrative, discourse is necessarily reshaped because it enters into new contexts. This recontextualization permits the creation of latest meanings, and therein lies the opportunity of resistance and social transformation. Hodges argues that employing rules on intertextuality to the research of political discourse is vital to knowing the way in which micro-level discursive motion contributes to macro-level cultural narratives just like the Bush "War on Terror" narrative.

Mit seinem Roman ?Tauben im Gras? hat Wolfgang Koeppen 1951 eine erste kritische Bestandsaufnahme der sich restaurierenden gesellschaftlichen und politischen Verhältnisse in der Bundesrepublik geleistet. Kaleidoskopartig skizziert er Gestalten und Vorgänge eines einzigen Tages im München des Jahres 1949, einer Stadt, die geschildert wird als undurchdringliches »Pandämonium«. »Koeppens Werk besteht, wie das von allen Schriftstellern, aus Büchern von sehr unterschiedlicher Bedeutung. Ich schätze besonders den frühen Roman Eine unglückliche Liebe, den Roman Der Tod in Rom und das Fragment Jugend. Für das allerwichtigste Buch von Koeppen halte ich den herrlichen Roman Tauben im Gras, veröffentlicht 1951 und nach wie vor viel zu wenig bekannt. Wer diesen Roman nicht gelesen hat, der solle nicht glauben, er kenne die deutsche Literatur nach 1945.« Marcel Reich-Ranicki
