Abstract

This article explores the influence of audience in shaping the political memoir, and examines the memoir as a rhetorical act. A comparison of the English and German versions of Waldheim's memoirs suggests a concern for differing audience perceptions of National Socialism, and an analysis of Waldheim's rhetorical stances and narrative strategies expose a negative rhetoric which simplifies historical complexities.
