The State of Speech:
Rhetoric and Political Thought in Ancient Rome
Joy Connolly

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This is a brilliant exploration of how rhetoric works as a means of fashioning political awareness. Showing an enviable command of political theory from Plato to Habermas and a sure grasp of Roman political practice, Connolly has written a seminal work that opens up a rich array of new insights by breaking up and infusing new life into traditional distinctions. With her own remarkable powers of rhetorical persuasion, Connolly seduces the reader into entering the complex negotiations of Roman political life."--Elizabeth Asmis, University of Chicago

"This is an admirable book in every way: in its ambition to read Roman rhetorical thought seriously, as political thought, in the breadth of its reference and the depth of its learning, and in its desire to connect the mores of the Romans with our own."--Robert Kaster, Princeton University
