Rezensionen
"Insightful, detailed, and substantial, this book has much to say to students of language and followers of politics, not to mention those of us passionate about both and how they interact." -- Virginia R. Dominguez, Gutgsell Professor, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

"Why don't more people write books like this? Jennifer Jackson's brilliant insights on Malagasy cartooning, oratory, and political culture are not only a breath of fresh air for the anthropological study of political language, but a genuinely creative contribution to the study of global democracy." -- David Graeber, Goldsmiths, University of London
"It is highly recommended to all and Wiley-Blackwell should be persuaded to circulate a reasonably priced paper edition immediately." (American Ethnologist, 16 February 2014)
