The prophetic tradition and radical rhetoric in America

Traces the rhetoric of reform across American history, examining such pivotal periods as the American Revolution, slavery, McCarthyism, and today's gay liberation movement. This book argues that the rhetoric of reform in America represents the continuation of a tradition separate from the commonly accepted principles of the Greeks.
