Alternative Rhetorics questions traditional canons of rhetorical thought, and offers new perspectives on rhetorics historically overlooked within Western culture. Along with establishing new methodologies for investigating the history of rhetorics, the book also explores rhetoric's changing relationship with technology. By challenging the reader's understanding of rhetoric and the rhetorical tradition, Alternative Rhetorics provides insights that will allow researchers, educators, and students to rethink their own position in a rhetorical world.

Review quote

"Alternative Rhetorics is a fine work of scholarly originality that is well crafted and energetically written. It will serve as a resource to students and scholars alike." -- C. Jan Swearingen, Texas A&M University "The book argues eloquently for understanding rhetoric as a decisive influence, an inclusive rather than an exclusive cultural power. It is compellingly instructive, and makes a significant contribution to the fields it brings together." -- Christine Murray, Director, English Writing Center, University of Texas, Arlington
