Political controversy : a study in eighteenth-century propaganda by Robert Donald Spector( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work provides the first full-scale examination of the eighteenth century periodical Political Controversy and of the essay-sheets reprinted therein, Briton, Auditor, North Briton, and Monitor. These essay-sheets were published in England at the end of the Seven Years' War with France, in support of and in opposition to Lord Bute's proposed terms in the treaty negotiations. Political Controversy reprinted the essay-sheets weekly along with the editor's annotations, material from other publications, and original contributions from readers. The journal provides modern readers with a good example of eighteenth century propaganda techniques, and is a guide to the issues revolving around the war, the struggle for governmental control, the British Empire, and the liberty of the press.''This book provides a clear analysis of the methods used in the political propaganda of the journal and the essay-sheets, including the writings of three significant authors, Tobias Smollett, Arthur Murphy, and John Wilkes. The work opens with a discussion of the essay-sheets and their relationship to one another, and follows with two chapters devoted to Political Controversy. The final chapter covers the most significant case for freedom of the press in England up to that time, North Briton, No. 45. This book will be of interest to scholars and students concerned with journalism, history, political science, and literature

The Nordstrom way : the inside story of America's # 1 customer service company by Robert Spector( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Coauthored by top Nordstrom salesman Patrick McCarthy and based on veteran journalist Robert Spector's exclusive, in-depth interviews with the Nordstrom family, senior executives, directors, and salespeople, The Nordstrom Way offers the first inside, uncensored book about this much admired - and much feared - retail powerhouse." "Working at Nordstrom is not for everyone. The authors describe a hotly competitive "Darwinian" culture where 35,000 employees are given freedom to either think and act like entrepreneurs or pass into extinction." "In the course of their analysis, the authors isolate practical lessons that readers can apply to both their professional and personal lives, including becoming "other-centered" rather than "self-centered," valuing the nobility of service, finding and bonding with customers, serving and keeping those customers, and giving frontline people the freedom to make decisions."--Jacket
