Rhetoric in the European Tradition provides a comprehensive, chronological survey of the basic models of rhetoric as they developed from the early Greeks through the twentieth century. Discussing rhetorical theories and practices in the context of the times of political and intellectual crisis that gave rise to them, Thomas M. Conley chooses carefully from a vast pool of rhetorical literature to give voice to those authors who exercised the greatest influence in their own and succeeding generations. This book is valuable as both an introduction for students and a reference and resource for scholars in fields including literature, cultural history, philosophy, and speech and communication studies.

Review: Rhetoric in the European Tradition

User Review  - Goodreads

Strong for an undergraduate survey of European rhetoric; good for a review for graduate studies. Lots of names, though, so be prepared for info overload in some areas. Would like to see more outlines in chapter appendices for major works. Read full review
