Coming to Terms with Language: An Anthology.
Liedlich, Raymond D., Ed.
Thirty essays on language and communication in their contemporary social contexts are brought together in this volume which differs significantly from other language readers in that it (1) treats only those aspects of the subjects that have demonstrated their appeal to a wide range of students, (2) emphasizes their social and cultural implications, (3) focuses on practical applications rather than theory, and (4) consists entirely of contemporary selections. The book is divided into six parts--Language and Reality, The Use and Abuse of Language, Rhetoric and Revolution, Language and Race, Verbal and Nonverbal Communication, and Language and Culture. Subjects explored include advertising, politics, war, obscenity, youth protest, revolution, and race. Each selection is accompanied by introductory notes and is followed by suggestions for discussion and writing. (HOD)
