Title: Rhetoric in Detail
Subtitle: Discourse Analyses of Rhetorical Talk and Text
Edited By: Barbara Johnstone
Christopher Hart
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DAPSAC%2031
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 31
Description:

The eleven studies in this volume illustrate and advance the synthesis of
discourse analysis with rhetorical studies. Rhetoric in Detail shows
how a variety of techniques from discourse analysis can be useful in
studying such concerns as agency, legitimation, controversy, and style, and
how concepts from rhetoric including genre and figuration can enrich the
work of discourse analysts. The authors' research sites range from
government commissions, political speeches, newspaper reports and letters
to interviews and conversations in beauty salons and online. Methodological
overviews interspersed throughout survey critical discourse analysis,
interactional sociolinguistics, grounded theory, computer-aided corpus
analysis, narrative analysis, and participant observation and provide
suggestions for further reading. Rhetoric in Detail is an invaluable
source for rhetoricians looking for systematic, grounded ways of
approaching new, more vernacular sites for rhetorical discourse and for
discourse analysts interested in seeing what they can learn from the
tradition and practice of rhetorical analysis.
