Ethnic Heritage as Rhetorical Legacy: The Plan of Delano.
Hammerback, John C.; Jensen, Richard J.
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v80 n1 p53-70 Feb 1994
Argues that persuasive qualities in the Plan of Delano (a powerful persuasive document in the interrelated Chicano and farm worker's movements of the 1960s and 1970s) are illuminated best from the perspective of its own ethnic legacy. Demonstrates that the Plan's Mexican-originated generic form and Mexican-American cultural context reveal sources of its rhetorical power and meaning. (SR)
