Roderick P. Hart holds the Shivers Chair in Communication and is Professor of Government at the University of Texas, Austin. Former dean of the Moody College of Communication and founding director of the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life, Hart is the author or editor of fifteen books, the most recent of which is Political Tone: What Leaders Say and Why (2013). Hart has been named a Fellow of the International Communication Association, a Distinguished Scholar by the National Communication Association, and received the Edelman Career Award from the American Political Science Association. He is also a member of the Academy of Distinguished Teachers at the University of Texas, Austin.
'Using complex content analysis, Hart goes into meticulous detail about who writes letters to the editor, what people write, how letters have changed over time, who reads such letters, how such letter-writing contrasts to anonymous internet posts, and why it is critical to the lifeblood of American democracy. Throughout the book, Hart weaves in academic research in a readable, nontechnical manner that strengthens the arguments and discussion. Overall, the book is well organized and readable. It is recommended to a general audience as well as undergraduate and graduate students. This book may be useful in a broad range of academic study, including political science, particularly for students and faculty studying political participation, communications, media, and other academic disciplines.'
