9780415875240: Encyclopedia of Rhetoric and Composition: Communication from Ancient Times to the Information Age

Available for the first time in paperback, this classic reference surveys the field, covering rhetoric's principles, concepts, applications, practical tools, and major thinkers. Rhetoric is increasingly studied in the context of other disciplines, such as anthropology, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, and pedagogy, because its well-established rules and time-honored methods are useful for developing modern communications and writing skills.

Drawing on the scholarship and expertise of 288 contributors, the Encyclopedia presents an overview of rhetoric and its role in contemporary education and communications, discusses rhetoric's contributions to various fields, surveys the applications of this versatile discipline to the teaching of English and language arts, and illustrates its usefulness in all kinds of discourse, argument, and exchange of ideas.

Review:

""Encyclopedia of Rhetoric and Composition offers the best guide to rhetoric and composition at understood and practiced in the United States."
-Literary Research Guide
"It is helpful to have a source such as this that can help people understand and analyze the ways that a message is crafted and why its creator chose to cast it in a certain way."
-Rettig on Reference
"An invaluable resource for our discipline...impressively broad in scope. These articles provide useful information and enjoyable browsing for even the most expert eye. The "Encyclopedia is not only a fine reference, but is also the ultimate coffee-table book. In five years, we'll wonder how we ever did without it."
-Rhetoric Society Quarterly
"A pleasure."
-College Composition and Communication
"Rhetoricians, whatever their disciplinary affiliation, will welcome the Encyclopedia of Rhetoric and Composition as the most comprehensive, current reference in English in their field."
-Journal of Communication
