The Rhetoric of Conflict. The Bobbs-Merrill Series in Composition and Rhetoric.
Johnston, Kenneth R., Ed.; Lhamon, W. T., Jr., Ed.
The concept that conflict generates rhetoric prompted this collection of 11 essays on three critical conflicts--war, race, and education--which are arranged to present an historical understanding of the rhetoric of each conflict and to include a variety of techniques. The four selections on war are by Woodrow Wilson, Walt Whitman Rostow, and Howard Zinn, plus a document from a selective service "Orientation Kit" which was withdrawn from official use in 1967. The four letters concerning race are by Horace Greeley, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Eldridge Cleaver. The three pieces on higher education were written by and for university professors, each reflecting his discipline: Thorstein Veblen (sociology), Clark Kerr (business and labor economics), and Theodore Roszak (history). Topics for discussion and writing are included for each selection. (JM)
