"'Oratory still matters in US politics,' the editors proclaim on page 1, and then they present a timely and comprehensive set of essays by distinguished authors showing us why and how it always has. This volume is required reading for scholars and students of US public address." Vanessa Beasley, Vanderbilt University
“This is a timely and important book. The work of exceptional scholars at once embodies the finest traditions in the theory and criticism of public discourse, and points readers in innovative directions for productive research in the twenty-first century. The volume combines case studies, explorations in theory and method, and exemplary archival research in a fashion certain to be of value to scholars at every level.” David Henry, University of Nevada at Las Vegas
“Parry-Giles and Hogan have given us a gift. Their edited volume contains insightful, timely analysis from some of the best minds in the discipline on where public address scholarship has been, where it is, and where it might be going. The Handbook of Rhetoric and Public Address pushes scholars to reflect on important theoretical, political, and methodological issues while it simultaneously underscores the continuing relevance of rhetoric and its study to civic education. All in all, this volume is a splendid contribution.” Denise M. Bostdorff, The College of Wooster
