Nicolas Sarkozy. Mesure et démesure du discours
Nicolas Sarkozy. Measure and Excess in His Speeches
Sarkozysm represents a break in the political history of the 5th Republic.
By analysing hundreds of speeches and interviews, Damon Mayaffre reveals Nicolas Sarkozy's favourite words, the secrets of his rhetoric, his figures of speech and techniques of manipulation. The author draws on the science of language to analyse the linguistic nature of his discourse, and on history and political science to bring understanding of Nicolas Sarkozy in his times.
