From the Publisher:

Titles of related interest from Waveland Press: Reid-Klumpp, American Rhetorical Discourse, Third Edition (ISBN 9781577663676).

From the Back Cover:

"The speeches included are significant American political addresses that provide a comprehensive variety of types of speeches. The essays represent a number of standard critical methodologies crucial for the study of rhetorical criticism. Professors and students are indeed fortunate to have an anthology of critical essays that include such classics as Halford Ross Ryan, Kurt W. Ritter, and David Ling's work. It is encouraging to see a text that exemplifies the character of the true rhetorical scholar and critic who is grounded in the history of rhetoric as opposed to individuals with some creative ability to choose a speech that accommodates a predetermined or assigned methodology. This is the best text I have seen for the study of rhetorical criticism as well as American public address." -- Barbara J. Valenzuela, Thiel College

"My students were uniform in their praise of the book." -- Jerry Butler, University of Arkansas, Little Rock

"An excellent collection. Students should find situational analyses provided by Ryan, Gashe, and others particularly helpful." -- Thomas Fernandez, University of Texas, Tyler

"I love the book. It possesses the depth and breadth I look for in a supplemental reader." -- Kevin T. Jones, Bradley University

"Ryan picked great people and great essays." -- Rick Pucci, Penn State University

"The communication profession is well served by this excellent edition of rhetorical artifacts. Ryan's editorial comments aid the student to see and understand rhetorical processes." -- Carl Kell, Western Kentucky University
