Considered the first significant teacher of rhetoric in America, John Witherspoon also introduced Scottish moral philosophy to this country and as president of Princeton reformed the curriculum to give emphasis to both studies. He was an active pamphleteer on religious and political issues and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Editor Thomas P. Miller argues that Witherspoon's career exemplifies the Ciceronian ideal, and the eight selections Miller presents from the 1802 American edition of the Works corroborate that claim. This new paperback edition includes a new preface by the editor of the volume that surveys the scholarship published on Witherspoon over the last twentyfive years and discusses how Miller's own perspective on Witherspoon has changed during that time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Miller provides a superb . . . introductory essay treating Witherspoon's works as well as the intellectual, social, and political contexts in which Witherspoon was educated, wrote his essays and sermons, taught, and advocated political freedom and American independence. Miller richly details numerous subjects important to understanding Witherspoon's writings."--Lloyd F. Bitzerin"Southern Communication Journal"
"In"The Selected Writings of John Witherspoon," Thomas Miller supplies an extensive demonstration of Witherspoon's writing, widening thereby the potential scope of what, until recently, has been thin Witherspoon scholarship."--Paul Bator in"Rhetoric Review""
