A Companion to Rhetoric and Rhetorical Criticism (Blackwell Companions to Literature and Culture)
by Charles Altieri (Contributor), Don H. Bialostosky (Contributor), Wayne Booth (Contributor), Wendy Olmsted (Editor), Walter Jost (Editor).....

Review
"Walter Jost and Wendy Olmsted have produced a remarkable volume that serves equally well as an introduction to rhetorical studies and as a reference work for specialists. The range of the essays and the credentials of the contributors mark the book as important, but its most notable feature is the conception and development of a general work on rhetoric that remains connected with specific texts, historical contexts, and material circumstances ... The result is a volume impressive in its parts and invaluable in its totality – a must read." Michael C. Leff, Northwestern University
