"Callaghan and Schnell have assembled an impressive roster of contributors who bring both substantive and methodological diversity to this volume. . . . An invaluable contribution to the framing literature."—Paul Freedman, University of Virginia
“Framing American Politics may well be the book that finally elevates framing research to the central position it deserves in explaining political developments. Macro-level and micro-level research presented in this book demonstrates that facts may be unalterable, but the meanings given to them are flexible and under human control. Scholars interested in understanding how events become endowed with the meanings that drive politics will benefit immensely from the rich findings offered by this collection of original essays.”—Doris A. Graber, University of Illinois at Chicago
“This is a state of the field book, full of theoretical insights and empirical illustrations showing how framing is crucial to the governing process. This should be read by every student of public opinion, the press, and democratic government.”—Lance Bennett, University of Washington at Seattle
“An important addition to public policy, public opinion, and mass media literature. Highly recommended.” --R.E. Dewhirst, Choice, March 2006
”Callaghan and Schnell do a masterful job of integrating a diverse set of studies and provide unusual coherence for an edited volume.”--James N. Drickman, ??
