Tannen's writing style is engaging, her anecdotes were interesting and her conclusions seemed plausible Unfortunately, her reasoning particularly her over-generalizations drove me bonkers. Deborah Tannen. In her number one bestseller, You Just Don't Understand, Deborah Tannen showed why talking to someone of the other sex can be like talking to someone from another world.

Her bestseller Talking from 9 to 5 did for workplace communication what You Just Don't Understand did for personal relationships.

Now Tannen is back with another groundbreaking book, this time widening her lens to examine the way we communicate in public--in the media, in politics, in our courtrooms and classrooms--once again letting us see in a new way forces that have been powerfully shaping our lives. The argument culture urges us to regard the world--and the people in it--in an adversarial frame of mind. It rests on the assumption that opposition is the best way to get anything done: The best way to explore an idea is to set up a debate; the best way to cover the news is to find spokespeople who express the most extreme, polarized views and present them as "both sides"; the best way to settle disputes is litigation that pits one party against the other; the best way to begin an essay is to oppose someone; and the best way to show you're really thinking is to criticize and attack.

Our public encounters have become more and more like having an argument with a spouse: You're not trying to understand what the other person is saying; you're just trying to win the argument. But just as spouses have to learn ways of settling differences withoutinflicting real damage on each other, so we, as a society, have to find constructive and creative ways of resolving disputes and differences.

Public discussions require making an argument for a point of view, not having an argument--as in having a fight. Tannen shows how deeply entrenched this cultural tendency is, the forms it takes, and how it affects us every day--sometimes in useful ways, but often causing, rather than avoiding, damage. In the argument culture, the quality of information we receive is compromised, and our spirits are corroded by living in an atmosphere of unrelenting contention.

The Argument Culture is a remarkable book that will change forever the way you perceive the world. You will listen to our public voices in a whole new way. The Aggression.

Analysis Of Fighting For Our Lives

There are many pieces of literature that were written long ago that taught us a lesson which is still applicable to our lives today. Each city changes their wall in attempt to scare the other and they keep going back and forth. Their war against each other was an allegory for the Cold War and taught us about how the United States and Soviet Union had. All throughout history and some may even argue that still today inequality and racism are prevalent and carry an enormous impact. During the course of WWII, there were many strides to end inequality at home and overseas. While some were fighting to keep our home soil free from foreign threats, others were serving to gain rights and fix all the domestic threats to their freedom.

The Argument Culture

Our society has become overwhelmingly adversarial, with consequences not only in our ability to solve problems but also in our personal relationships. The war on drugs, the battle of the sexes, politicians' turf battles—war metaphors pervade our talk and shape our thinking, urging us to approach anything we need to accomplish as a fight between two opposing sides. Tannen traces this tendency to the history of our educational system, and shows its roots among boys at play. Exploring how other cultures approach opposition, and discussing the influence of electronic communication in ratcheting up the level of aggression, Tannen shows how we can move toward more constructive dialogue in our public as well our private lives. This book will change forever how you see forces that powerfully shape our lives, and suggests new ways of reaching our goals.
