Coding of US Presidential discourse on protection



This dataset is based on NVivo coding of all clauses in US Presidential Papers (Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States 1989–2012 [Washington, D.C.: US Government Printing Office]) with the word "protect" in any of its forms. Clauses are coded for their referent objects (who is being protected). For those clauses that deal with the protection of global civilians (referent object is not US or allies, but people in other countries), coding is also done for the agent of protection and for the method of protection (protection by changing someone else's behaviour vs. protection by changing one's own behaviour).
