From the Back Cover:

The History and Theory of Rhetoric offers an accessible discussion of the history of rhetorical studies in the Western tradition, from ancient Greece to contemporary American and European theorists. By tracing the historical progression of rhetoric from the Greek Sophists of the 5th Century B.C. to contemporary studies—such as the rhetoric of science and feminist rhetoric—this concise yet comprehensive text helps students better understand what rhetoric is and what unites differing rhetorical theories throughout history. Student-friendly, The History and Theory of Rhetoric uses contemporary examples throughout and emphasizes the relevance of rhetoric to today's students.

New to This Edition

  • Integrates updated, contemporary examples throughout, inviting students to view the history of rhetoric as relevant to their own lives.
  • Devotes greater attention to women's contributions throughout several periods of rhetorical history, uncovering for students an often hidden or suppressed area of study in the field as well as introducing them to new women writers.
  • Includes extensive updates on contemporary rhetoric and a more contemporary treatment of the ancient sophists, so that it reflects changes in the field of rhetoric and recent research.
