Praise for An Introduction to Rhetorical Criticism

McCroskey offers a solid, time tested, traditional approach to the study of rhetoric. The book offers an impressive distillation of classical rhetoric. . .[and] demonstrates that these principles still work and that they can be taught.
Jim Hasenauer, California State University at Northridge

McCroskey’s book necessitates that students raise themselves beyond the level of most texts to that of true college students.
J. Kanan Sawyer, University of Texas — Austin
