Publisher Comments:

A comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to the analysis of public rhetoric, Modern Rhetorical Criticism teaches readers how to examine and interpret rhetorical situations, ideas, arguments, structure, and style. The text covers a wide range of critical techniques, from cultural and dramatistic analysis to feminist and Marxist approaches. A wealth of original criticism demonstrates how to analyze such diverse forms as junk mail, congressional debates, and traffic regulations, as well as literature. This long-awaited revision contains new coverage of mass media, feminist criticism, and European criticism.

About the Authors

Roderick P. Hart holds the Allen B. Shivers Centennial Chair in Communication at the University of Texas at Austin, and specializes in political communication, methods of rhetorical criticism, and persuasion in social movements. A four-time winner of the National Communication Association's annual research award and the recipient of the Association's Winans/Wichelns Memorial Book Award, he has published on such topics as the rhetoric of the true believer, rhetorical sensitivity and social interaction, the language of the modern presidency, and communication studies as the new humanities.

Suzanne M. Daughton teaches courses in rhetorical theory and criticism and gender studies at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. She has served on several editorial boards and as editor of Women's Studies in Communication. Samples of her work have appeared in Women's Studies in Communication, the Quarterly Journal of Speech, and Critical Studies in Mass Communication.

Book News Annotation:

Primarily emphasizing the U.S. tradition of critical inquiry, Hart (communication, U. of Texas at Austin) and Daughton (communication, Southern Illinois State U. at Carbondale) present an introduction to public rhetoric intended for those taking coursework in rhetorical criticism. The authors aim to demonstrate the commonalities of rhetoric in law, politics, religion, literature, science, education, and entertainment. They provide chapters on the analysis of situations, ideas, argument, form, syntax and imagery, lexicon, and media. They also explore specialized forms of criticism, including role, cultural, dramatistic, feminist, and ideological criticism.
