Abstract

In Rhetoric and Community, seventeen leading scholars of rhetoric and discourse join forces to explore an area of growing scholarly interest - how rhetoric defines, rallies, polarizes, and marginalizes specific communities. Contributors to the volume consider such contentious issues as how individuals are forged into "communities"; what sustains vibrant, constructive communities; how communities become fragmented; and what leads to divisions of race, class, and gender, the rhetoric of hatred and violence, or failures of public discussion to resolve common problems.
