Review quote

Praise for previous editions: Without question, the most comprehensive collection of political speeches and documents in one anthology... -- Robert E. Denton Jr., Virginia Tech Praise for previous editions: American Political Rhetoric takes one through the drama of American politics and clearly demonstrates that the art of politics is closely connected with the art of making an argument. And, as the readings demonstrate,there are rewards for making the right argument and profound consequences for making the wrong argument... -- Brian Janiskee, California State University at San Bernardino Praise for previous editions: American Political Rhetoric engages students in thoughtful reflection on the classic modernity and historical development of the American polity. Students appreciate reading the primary texts for themselves and many of them leave the course wanting to delve deeper into the writings of our greatest statesmen and jurists. The material in this book is essential preparation for upper level courses in American politics... -- John Ray, Xavier University Praise for previous editions: American Political Rhetoric engages students in thoughtful reflection on the classic modernity and historical development of the American polity.
