Building upon a rich legacy, the new edition of The Rhetoric of Western Thought provides readers with a comprehensive understanding of rhetoric from its inception in the ancient world, to its present day expression in contemporary practice and scholarship.
The 11th edition gives deliberate attention to the voices, bodies, and humans that are too often forgotten or silenced in the history of rhetoric.
Risks are all around us. From catastrophic weather events to gun violence, from infrastructure failings to financial devastation…we live with the threat of risk every day. How do we get those who are at risk, or who have already been impacted by crisis, to do what they need to do to minimize the risk?
We need to get information to the right audience, get them to take the risk seriously, and get them to act in a manner that makes sense. There is a distinction between crisis communication and risk communication, and that is an important point that is discussed throughout the text.

The emergence of social media, the digital revolution, and the today’s political climate have all brought renewed attention to deception as a human communication phenomenon.
Lying and Deception in Human Interaction presents deception from a variety of perspectives. The text primarily focuses on the communication process while blending in concepts and references that touch on many important areas of study across the humanities and social sciences.
