This book aims to closely examine the techniques used by the polemicists of the Dreyfus Affair, as found in the newspapers, journals and books of the period. The nature of polemic and of the French press of the period are investigated to show how authors' choice of stylistic techniques, and of words and images, reveal their innermost aims. The book also examine how words and concepts subtly change their meaning and notions such as truth and justice become completely devalued.
