Product description

Review


The panoptic vision, the reliable accounts, and deeply conservative view of what constitutes rhetoric and rhetorical theory have justly made these books standard for classicists and other disciplines. . . . Many of the qualities admired in the three volumes are transferred elegantly to the briefer format. There are few scholars who could construct such a compilation. -- Bryn Mawr Classical Review



The discipline of rhetoric, as Mr. Kennedy shows meticulously, was central to ancient life. -- The Economist
