Rezensionen

WalterJost, University of Virgina
"Professor Olmsted has produced a much-needed and unique book: anaccount of rhetorical thinking through the ages focused on specifictexts in their cultural contexts. The book does something far moreimportant than impart mere doctrine: it demonstrates how, andteaches one, to think like a rhetorician. It will make aninvaluable contribution in and out of the classroom."
