The Third Edition of The Rhetorical Power of Popular Culture offers students a step-by-step introduction to rhetorical theory and criticism by focusing on the powerful role popular culture plays in persuading us as to what to believe and how to behave. In every chapter, students are introduced to rhetorical theories, presented with current examples from popular culture that relate to the theory, and guided through demonstrations about how to describe, interpret, and evaluate popular culture texts through rhetorical analysis. Author Deanna Sellnow also provides sample student essays in every chapter to demonstrate rhetorical criticism in practice. This edition's easy-to-understand approach and range of popular culture examples help students apply rhetorical theory and criticism to their own lives and assigned work.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Sellnow's The Rhetorical Power of Popular Culture engages writers in complex critiques of popular culture and beyond. Above all, Sellnow orients writers towards establishing robust lines of inquiry while reminding us that these are situated processes that occur in specific contexts and communities of practice, constantly mediated by a variety of mediums."

-- Mandy Macklin
