Rezensionen
"Marrying originality and theoretical broadmindedness withthe virtues of a learned survey, Habinek brings the reader face toface with the aesthetic, political, and philosophical vitality ofancient rhetoric and oratory." Joy Connolly, New YorkUniversity

"More than a compact history of ancient rhetoric,Habinek's Ancient Rhetoric and Oratory is a revelatoryanalysis of its social functions and an energetic defense of itsdemocratic potential." Steve Johnstone, University ofArizona

"Habinek's experience and mature scholarship are manifest in theproduction of this work. It is fairly comprehensive, but even inareas in which it chooses to be selective, the choice isjudicious... I would recommend this book to senior undergraduatesand graduate students of history of rhetoric." Scholia
