Moments in Contemporary Rhetoric and Communication, v1 n3 p1-80 Winter 1971
The purpose of this publication is to present the thinking of graduate and undergraduate students on contemporary issues, particularly those related to modern rhetoric and communication. The first section of this issue consists of articles on such topics as the current status of the Weathermen movement; the sexual revolution in America; a comparison of two approaches to interpersonal communication (the traditional etiquette approach versus modern self-actualization theories); a study of the rhetoric of the English women's suffrage movement; an analysis of the rhetoric of the New South; and implications for communications of the Pentagon papers incident. The second section, initiated in this issue, contains articles pertaining to mass media and the fine arts. Following an introductory article that outlines the scope of the new section, there is an essay on current standards of commercial television and reviews of current books, films, and television programs. The third section, "Critical and Directive Input," consists of interpretations and evaluations of some of the contributions. In this issue, there are critiques of the Weathermen article and a previously published article on women's liberation. (Author/RN)
