"Perfect for my Rhetoric Survey course. It fills a void in non-Western and pre-Greco-Roman areas. A magnificent book."--Andrew King, Louisiana State University "Timely! A work of scholarly leadership--essential reading."--Judith Yaross Lee, Ohio University "Fabulous! This is exactly the type of work needed to place the rhetorical tradition within cross-cultural structures."--J. Rocky Lozavito, Northwestern State University "Very useful as a research resource in Intercultural Communication."--Diana Peck, William Patterson University
