Critiques of Contemporary Rhetoric.
Campbell, Karlyn Kohrs
The purpose of this book is to define characteristics of rhetorical discourse, explain man's capacity to influence and be influenced, and describe the purposes and processes of rhetorical criticism. Representative speech texts, with critiques, are included on the following contemporary topics: withdrawal from Vietnam (Richard M. Nixon); militarization (George Wald); criticism of news media (Spiro T. Agnew); ecology (Paul Ehrlich); black protest movements (Eldridge Cleaver); women's liberation (Jo Freeman); Israeli freedom struggles (Eliezer Ben Yisrael); generation conflicts (Edgar Z. Friedenberg); and politics of the 1960's (Emmet John Hughes). Questions for discussion and brief bibliographies follow each speech. (Author/RN)
