Aristotle noted that "equality" is the plea not of those who are satisfied but of those who seek change, and the word has long been invoked in the name of social reform. It retains its force because arguments for equality put arguments for inequality on the defensive. But why is "equality" laudatory and "inequality" pejorative? In this first book-length analysis of the rhetorical force of equality arguments, Peter Westen argues that they derive their persuasiveness largely from the kind of word that "equality" is, rather than from the values it incorporates. By focusing on ordinary language and using commonplace examples from law and morals, Westen argues that equality is a single concept that lends itself to a multiplicity of conceptions by virtue of its capacity to incorporate diverse standards of comparison by reference. Equality arguments draw rhetorical force in part from their tendency to mask the standards of comparison on which they are based, and in so doing to confound fact with value, premises with conclusions, and uncontested with contested norms.

Le développement du tourisme sportif tarde à se structurer et entraîne une interrogation de nature communicationnelle sur ses causes. Les professionnels se projettent dans une identité socialement valorisante à partir des idéologies intrinsèques du sport. La matérialité professionnelle rationnelle du tourisme induit une représentation déqualifiante des métiers sportifs qui déclenche un processus de rejet. La communication des organisations s'exprime dans la dimension authentique de l'identité des acteurs qui valorise les rôles et les statuts de ses acteurs. Si cette construction handicape le développement structurel de l'offre, il en élève la valeur. Ces particularités identitaires confortent la représentation sociale du sport que les consommateurs attendent et s'opposent à la banalisation de sa consommation.

In the still of a snow-covered morning in upstate New York, a girl out riding her horse is hit by a 40-ton truck. Though horribly injured, both thirteen-year-old Grace Maclean and her horse Pilgrim survive. But the impact on their lives is devastating. Grace is the only child of prominent New York magazine editor, Annie Graves, and her lawyer husband Robert. In a way that none of them at first understands, their destiny comes to depend on Pilgrim's. So mutilated and traumatised is he that even the vet who saved him wishes he hadn't. Annie refuses to have him put down, sensing that if she does, something in Grace will die too. Then Annie hears about a man called Tom Booker, a 'whisperer' who is said to have the gift of healing troubled horses. Abandoning her job, Annie sets off across the continent with Grace and Pilgrim to find him. Under the massive Montana sky, all their lives are changed for ever.
