Topic-Driven Environmental Rhetoric - Routledge Studies in Technical Communication, Rhetoric, and Culture (Hardback)Derek G. Ross (editor)
- We can order this
Common topics and commonplaces help develop arguments and shape understanding. When used in argumentation, they may help interested parties more effectively communicate valuable information. The purpose of this edited collection on topics of environmental rhetoric is to fill gaps in scholarship related to specific, targeted, topical communication tactics. The chapters in this collection address four overarching areas of common topics in technical communication and environmental rhetoric: framing, place, risk and uncertainty, and sustainability. In addressing these issues, this collection offers insights for students and scholars of rhetoric, as well as for environmental communication practitioners looking for a more nuanced understanding of how topic-driven rhetoric shapes attitudes, beliefs, and decision-making.

"Topic-Driven Environmental Rhetoric is a deliberate and superb collection of argument analysis on environmental matters. I found this anthology to be a page-turner, because I appreciated the inclusion of chapters on high profile environmental matters that are difficult to understand through mainstream media alone, and the thorough research, background, and analysis covered by each contributor that helped me understand the complexities of those issues. The unique, topic-driven argument angle clearly demonstrated how such arguments shape global politics on many issues that have definite effects on our lives now and will affect the future. I highly recommend this book for technical communication scholars, graduate students, and practitioners." --Diane Martinez, Western Carolina University
