Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This book examines what has gone wrong with public discourse and deliberation in the United States using the American Puritans as a case study that informs our understanding of current practice.” –Gregory Clark, Brigham Young University

Voices in the Wilderness contributes to the expansion of research beyond the history of ideas about rhetoric to examine the rhetorical and ethical practices of more diverse traditions. Roberts-Miller’s analysis will be of particular interest to scholars working on theories of the public sphere and histories of religious rhetorics.” —Rhetoric Society Quarterly
