  • The Rhetoric of Mao Zedong: Transforming China and Its People by Xing Lu
           (review)
    • Abstract: As Xing Lu demonstrates in her powerful new book, The Rhetoric of Mao Zedong: Transforming China and Its People, “Mao was a master mythmaker” (7). Blending traditional Chinese symbolic resources, adaptations from the West, and populist modes of design, he constructed a “rhetoric of hope” that was compelling for its “mythic vision of what China, and the Chinese people, could be” (7). Lu exposes rhetoric as the source of Mao’s power and asks the reader to acknowledge the ongoing significance of Mao’s rhetorical legacy in the world today.Lu explains that Mao spoke directly to the people by using the vocabulary of the masses. Through this adaptation, he demonstrated that he spoke on their behalf. Like other populist ... Read More

  • Naïve Readings: Reveilles Political and Philosophic by Ralph Lerner
           (review)
    • Abstract: Naïve Readings is an enjoyable series of critical examinations of major historical texts written by a political historian who thinks he has discovered rhetorical analysis. On its dust jacket, Ralph Lerner’s latest book purports to offer “a new method of reading . . . a way toward deeper understanding of some of history’s most important—and most concealed—messages.” A tantalizing endorsement—one that befits Lerner’s distinguished scholarly career. Lerner himself calls the book a “reconsideration” of “our current habits of reading” (2). So, we are led to expect a bold survey of the major thinkers he studies, from Franklin to Tocqueville to Maimonides (no female thinkers are discussed in the book).There are some major ... Read More

  • Epideictic Rhetoric: Questioning the Stakes of Ancient Praise by Laurent
           Pernot (review)
    • Abstract: Epideictic rhetoric, as one of the three Aristotelian genres, encompasses a great deal of rhetorical practice. Keynotes, commencements, inaugurations, and concessions dot public life, whereas eulogies, wedding toasts, and quinceañera speeches mark private transitions. Although deliberative and forensic rhetoric receives a great deal of scholarly focus, the most commonly encountered genre in the twenty-first century might be the epideictic. Epideictic rhetoric was featured similarly in ancient Greece and Rome; it was commonly used yet uncommonly valued. Aside from the basics of praise and blame, the utility of epideictic rhetoric is far less clear than forensic or deliberative.Laurent Pernot’s book Epideictic ... Read More

  • Demosthenes’ “On the Crown”: Rhetorical Perspectives ed. by James J.
           Murphy (review)
    • Abstract: The best way to introduce students to ancient rhetorical history and theory is by having them read speeches. To this end, the increasing scholarly attention to Attic oratory is a boon to historians of rhetoric. There are new translations like the University of Texas Press series, The Oratory of Classical Greece. There are commentaries like Todd’s Commentary on Lysias: Speeches 1–11, monographs like Serafim’s recent Attic Oratory and Performance, and edited collections like Carawan’s The Attic Orators.Demosthenes’ “On the Crown”: Rhetorical Perspectives contributes to this trend, but it is unique in conception and execution: a one-volume introduction to a single speech offering students of rhetoric everything they ...

  • Rhetoric in Neoliberalism ed. by Kim Hong Nguyen (review)
    • Abstract: In recent years, a number of essays, books, and edited collections have been published that explore the rhetoric of economics from a critical cultural standpoint. There is even now a newly formed National Communication Association (NCA) division called Economics, Communication, and Society (ECS) that involves, as its main object of study, rhetorical, discursive, and cultural articulations of the economy. As one of the most recent publications in this burgeoning area of scholarship, Kim Hong Nguyen’s Rhetoric in Neoliberalism is the first collection of essays to focus entirely on the intersection between rhetoric and neoliberalism. Defined by the editor as “a political rationality that advances competition as its ... Read More

  • Fashioning Lives: Black Queers and the Politics of Literacy by Eric
           Darnell Pritchard (review)
    • Abstract: While reading Eric Darnell Prichard’s Fashioning Lives: Black Queers and the Politics of Literacy, I was transported back to the summer of 2001—the time I went to my first book signing. I was in Davis-Kidd Bookstore in Memphis, Tennessee, waiting in line for E. Lynn Harris—a very popular African American LGBT author—to sign a copy of his book Any Way the Wind Blows. While standing in line, I started a conversation with the person next to me. When discussing Harris’s work and its popularity, the person told me, “He’s the first author I read who let me know that it’s fine to be a black gay man. Because of him, I allowed myself to come out to my family and live a life that is uniquely mine.” This reclaiming a sense of ... Read More

  • Bounding Biomedicine: Evidence and Rhetoric in the New Science of
           Alternative Medicine by Colleen Derkatch (review)
    • Abstract: Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is ubiquitous in U.S. healthcare practices. According to the most recent National Health Interview Survey in 2012, approximately 59 million Americans have spent $30.2 million per year out-of-pocket money on complementary health approaches and pain management.The acceptance of CAM by mainstream medicine has increased, particularly because of the need for alternative pain treatment caused by the opioid epidemic. The National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health is busy sponsoring, conducting, and disseminating research designed to integrate CAM in biomedicine. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has issued guidelines for ... Read More

  • The Populist and Nationalist Roots of Trump’s Rhetoric
    • Abstract: Donald Trump’s successful campaign for the presidency was fundamentally unlike any other in modern American political history. He constantly violated longstanding norms, leading Anand Girid-haradas to observe that Trump’s campaign disrupted “American politics,” especially “the established rules of communicating with voters,” a conclusion supported by rhetorical scholar Edward Appel.1 Jennifer Mercieca called Trump’s election “a political rupture” that “represented a break with traditional presidential campaign rhetoric as well as a break with a traditional presidency.”2 Mary Stuckey backed this conclusion when with considerable understatement she noted that Trump “brings something new and different to the American ...

  • Hacked: Defining the 2016 Presidential Election in the Liberal Media
    • Abstract: The dialogue concerning Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election is confusing. The clandestine nature of Russia’s influence, the vast array of actors involved, the scope of Russia’s multimedia efforts, and the prevalence of conspiracy theories have made Russia’s campaign difficult to define precisely. The extent of the Russian government’s involvement in efforts to sway the election, and the Trump campaign’s knowledge of—or participation in—these endeavors, is subject to a fierce and partisan debate. The obscurity of this discussion stems from many factors: namely, intentional obfuscation by President Trump and his administration, in addition to “constantly shifting narratives . . . and the ...

  • Ethnicity, Politics, and the Rhetoric of Genocide at Eldoret
    • Abstract: Within weeks of Kenya’s 2007 general election, widespread violence killed 1,133 people and displaced at least 350,000 more.1 The official election results had been delayed for days due to voting irregularities and accusations of ballot rigging. Initially, Raila Odinga held a strong lead over incumbent candidate Mwai Kibaki, but he seemed to lose that lead overnight. Protests erupted when the Electoral Commission of Kenya declared Kibaki the winner, despite sustained claims by domestic and foreign election observers of voting fraud. In the midst of this crisis, one incident in particular captivated the world’s attention: the burning alive of approximately 30 women and children seeking shelter inside a church in ... Read More

  • Commonplace Witnessing: Rhetorical Invention, Historical Remembrance, and
           Public Culture by Bradford Vivian (review)
    • Abstract: In Commonplace Witnessing: Rhetorical Invention, Historical Remembrance, and Public Culture, rhetorical scholar Bradford Vivian argues that witnessing serves important personal, social, political, and moral discursive functions in modern liberal–democratic society. In such a culture, anyone can serve as a witness and use any medium of communication to bear witness. Certain historical tragedies offer citizens and civic leaders commonplace tropes and idioms to shape historical consciousness regarding tragic events, as well as a grammar through which public deliberation about contentious issues can occur. Vivian uses diverse case studies to illuminate clusters of idioms that relate to master tropes that he finds at ... Read More

  • A War of Words: The Rhetorical Leadership of Jefferson Davis by R. Jarrod
           Atchison (review)
    • Abstract: Ideally, a scholarly work is more than original, incisive, and well-documented. Like the great artifact or, in some cases, data it analyzes, scholarship at its best exudes a timeless quality. This was my first impression after reading Atchison’s A War of Words. Beyond being a significant contribution to rhetorical scholarship, A War of Words compels readers to deepen and broaden their understanding of one of the most controversial figures in American cultural history: Jefferson Davis. At this current moment of racial unrest and calls for the removal of Confederate symbols, few treatments of rhetorical history are as relevant as Atchison’s book. This fact alone should spark the interest of Rhetoric & Public Affairs ... Read More

  • The Motherhood Business: Consumption, Communication, and Privilege ed. by
           Anne Teresa Demo, Jennifer L. Borda, and Charlotte Kroløkke (review)
    • Abstract: “The mergers of mothering and commerce, public goods and consumer goods, define the business of motherhood, and a goal of our volume [is] to understand how social inequality is a subsidiary product” (20). Anne Teresa Demo’s capacious claim in her introduction to The Motherhood Business: Consumption, Communication, and Privilege stayed with me as I read the collection, which was edited by Demo, Jennifer L. Borda, and Charlotte Kroløkke. It sets the stage for a study rich with integrated concepts and concerns—the “mergers” that meld the experiences of motherhood, the market forces that twist through our lives, whether we are parents or not, and the discourses that enable us to reflect, obscure, and make sense of this ...
