From the Publisher"If we are ever to get beyond the unproductive debate that has pitted rhetorical theory and philosophical abstraction against rhetorical practice and material cases, then we must start by understanding our own history, our own rhetoric, and our own misunderstandings. Doing Rhetorical History is an antidote to what has ailed us for too long. Drink deeply, and let the healing begin."
—Martin J. Medhurst, Texas A&M University
"Doing Rhetorical History addresses once again relationships between criticism and history. The chapters on Dorothy Day and Mike Mansfield are particularly interesting examples of what rhetorical history adds to critical understanding of discourse, but the entire book is a provocative revisiting of issues with a long history in communication studies."
—Karlyn Kohrs Campbell, University of Minnesota
