Bjørn F. Stillion Southard

University Press of Mississippi

Examination of the context surrounding the formation of ACS and the speeches delivered at its founding reveals the peculiar argumentation of the group. Such argumentation was marked by its inability to resolve central tensions between many of the key audiences.
