520    From 2002 to 2008, the Bush administration argued that 
       Iran was developing nuclear weapons, despite years of 
       inconclusive International Atomic Energy Agency inspection
       reports. In the absence of substantive evidence, much of 
       the debate was conducted via public forums with a heavy 
       persuasive element to the discourse. This book offers an 
       in-depth consideration of the rhetoric surrounding Irans 
       controversial nuclear programme. It takes an 
       interdisciplinary approach, examining speeches, interviews,
       news reports, online message boards and newspaper layouts 
       during the Bush Presidency (2000-2008). Engaging with 
       visual grammar and narrative, the book looks at layouts 
       from the Associated Press, The New York Times and The 
       Washington Post, amongst others. The book points out, 
       using rhetorical theory and discourse analysis, the 
       conditions that lent credibility to the Bush 
       administrations position by examining the arguments Bush 
       and his political surrogates put forward, and the 
       discourse strategies that influenced which ideas gained 
       salience and which were downplayed. Political 
       communication and Foucaults theory of governmentality are 
       brought in to articulate the implications regarding the 
       influence, importance and expansion of executive power.
