McDermid, Nancy Gossage; Timmis, John H., III
Exetasis, v2 n4 Entire Issue March 25, 1976
The rhetorical criticism of the Patricia Hearst trial published in this quarterly journal consists of two articles written before a verdict was reached. The first, "Closing Arguments in the Patricia Hearst Trial," by Nancy Gossage McDermid, reflects the author's perception of stylistic and substantive differences between the arguments of the defense (F. Lee Bailey) and of the prosecution (James Browning). "Thought Control in the Patricia Hearst Trial," by John H. Timmis III examines the position of the defense with regard to its "arguable" legal standing and its relation to psychology. (KS)
