MEDIA REVIEWS
""Addressing Postmodernity" is an example of how rhetoric and cultural studies might be combined to develop the kind of social theory that will be necessary to sustain us in the years ahead." John Louis Lucaites, Indiana University"
"Biesecker reveals Burke's energy and originality and her own talent in bringing understanding and significance to his theories. This volume is also a pragmatic application for postmodern societal fragmentation. . . . An important source for rhetoricians, philosophers, and sociologists, this book will become a classic interpretation of Kenneth Burke's works." "CHOICE""
