Presidential crisis rhetoric : review and extensions -- Agenda-setting, agenda-extension, and framing analysis -- North Korea and nuclear nonproliferation -- The Bosnian crisis : 21 November 1995 to 15 December 1995 -- The Haitian crisis : from Bush to Clinton -- The Haitian crisis, part two : from initial success erupts crisis.
Kuypers employs a new historical/critical approach to analyze both the press and the Clinton administration's handling of three international crisis situations. Using case studies of Bosnia, Haiti, and the alleged North Korean nuclear buildup in 1993, he examines contemporary presidential crisis communication and the agenda-setting and agenda-extension functions of the press.
The importance of this study lies in its timeliness; President Clinton is the first atomic-age president not to have the Cold War meta-narrative to use in legitimating international crises. Prior studies in presidential crisis rhetoric found that the president received broad and consistent support during times of crisis. Kuypers found that the press often advanced an oppositional frame to that used by the Clinton administration.
The press frames were found to limit the options of the President, even when the press supported a particular presidential strategy. This is a major study that will be of interest to scholars and researchers of the press, the modern presidency, and American foreign policy.
