Persuasion: Reception and Responsibility
This text aims to help students become consumers of persuasion. It presents persuasion through the examination of various aspects of popular culture - politics, mass media, advertising, and the information superhighway - as they exemplify and teach critical theories of persuasion. Its focuses on language and critical thinking are combined with readability and verbal and visual examples of persuasion in action. Woven throughout this framework, coverage of persuasion theory, research, and ethics is consistently and repeatedly tied back to the theme of the book - developing students to be critical consumers of all forms of persuasion.
