About the Author:

Alan G. Gross is Professor of Rhetoric at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

Review:


"Anyone with any interest in the history and evolution of the scientific literature should read this book. I do not know any other study of the birth, growth, and character of scientific literature that comes close to this one in breadth of disciplines and languages considered and in depth of analysis. ... I hope Gross, Harmon, and Reidy get the audience that they deserve among CSE members. They have given all of us who work for scientific journals an extraordinarily detailed and rich study of where scientific papers came from, how they have changed, and where they are today."--Science Editor


"The book succeeds in meticulously unpacking the argumentative strategies that have evolved over the centuries in attempts to express an increasingly complex set of knowledge claims, the statements science makes about reality."--Technical Communication
