Write The First Customer Review

Thoroughly embedded in postmodern theory, this book offers a critique of traditional conceptions of the liberal arts. Citing Aristotle's RHETORIC, author Janet Atwill argues that liberal arts traditions eclipsed the power of rhetoric by transforming it from an art of disrupting and reinventing lines of power to a discipline defined by virtue but modeled on a specific gender and class type.
