New Approaches to Rhetoric

Edited by:


February 2004 | 368 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Demonstrating and showcasing theory into action, this book provides fresh perspectives on the study of rhetoric and rhetoric's ability to affect change in today's society. This collection of all original pieces challenge and expand the definitions, approaches, and assumptions governing rhetorical scholarship, inviting students to join rhetorical theorists and critics in an ongoing dialogue concerning what it means to study communication in a postmodern world.
