Product Description

Review

“In The Thanksgiving Turkey Pardon, Swedish anthropologist Magnus Fiskesj[1]o, sees in the annual presidential reprieve of an otherwise doomed turkey something much more than a lark. (Just ask a vegetarian; it’s no joke.) ‘It is really a symbolic pardoning act which, through public performance, establishes and manifests the sovereign’s position at the helm of the state by highlighting . . . his power to control matters of life and death.’ That observation leads Fiskesj[1]o to some troubling thoughts on the exercise of U.S. sovereignty, from Teddy Roosevelt’s big-stick era to the holding of prisoners at Guantanamo.”&#151;</I>Washington Post Book World
