This volume includes thirty of the most significant essays from the literature on social protest rhetoric. From Leland Griffin’s groundbreaking work, "The Rhetoric of Historical Movements," to very recent case studies of specific movements, the selections show the evolution of a dynamic scholarship—its theoretical foundations, the debates that shape further inquiry, the critical studies that illustrate key theoretical positions. Substantive introductions to the three sections highlight key points, vital connections, and recurring conflicts. A selected bibliography helps students launch their own research on social movements.

"[This book] is an excellent idea. There is a real need for such a volume." Richard J. Jensen, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
"It collects for the first time in one place the key writings and debates in the communication field on social movements. It provides a balance of theory with case studies." Dana L. Cloud, The University of Texas at Austin
"In this field, the important work in social movements is now being done through case studies. This makes the last section especially important. The choices in this section are fine examples of criticism." Bonnie J. Dow, The University of Georgia
"The book [has a] specific and realistic discussion about movement theory and criticism drawn directly from the field." Molly Mayhead, Western Oregon University
"Articles selected for the text clearly offer a wide range of rhetorical perspectives through each major section. I was [also] impressed with the selection of readings for the ‘competing and ‘critical’ sections. I would adopt the proposed text as a required text for my course. It includes many of the essays I now require graduate and undergraduate students to read and critique." Ronald Stephens, University of Nebraska, Lincoln
"I believe this text will ultimately be adopted as a required text for many social movements courses." Steven R. Goldzwig, Marquette UniversityAbout the Author:
