Patrick Henry, The Orator

RRP $280.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

Best known for his Liberty or Death address, the oratorical essence of the American Revolution, Patrick Henry, Virginia patriot, statesman, and foremost orator of the Revolutionary period, is scrutinized in this eighth volume in the Greenwood Press Great American Orators series. Taken as a whole the volumes chronicle the role of public discourse in the United States and fill the void that has existed in American public address. In Patrick Henry, The Orator, David A. McCants develops fresh perspectives on an illustrious orator who excelled in two of the classical genres of rhetoric--the forensic and the deliberative. McCants gives a creative and compelling interpretation of the rhetorical efficacy of Henry's Liberty or Death speech, making a strong prima facie case for his evangelical explication. Rhetorical topics such as delivery, modes of proof, style, organization, effect, and more are examined within the context of the historical exigencies that motivated Henry and shaped his responses. The culture and politics of eighteenth-century Virginia as well as biographical factors that shaped Henry's development are explored in depth. Also included are six important speech texts with critical materials that provide students and scholars of the history and criticism of American public address a more comprehensive basis for understanding Henry's rhetorical reputation. Patrick Henry's development as a popular orator is traced in Part I, which presents critical analyses of the orator and his speeches during his Protest and National periods and in legal venues. In these chapters McCants focuses on the rhetorical considerations of speaker and speech, purpose and effect. Part II contains texts of the important addresses discussed in the preceding critical analyses. These collected speeches and speech reports include The Parsons' Cause Case, the conclusion of the Caesar-Brutus speech in the Stamp Act Debate of May 1765, the Liberty or Death speech, two speeches from the Ratifying Convention Debate, and Patrick Henry's defense in the British Debts Case. A chronology of major speeches lists all of Henry's known addresses as well as the places and dates of the speeches and attests to the scope of rhetoric in the United States. The bibliography contains carefully described historical collections and gathers together primary and secondary sources that bear on the speaker and the oratory. An index closes the volume. Students and scholars of rhetoric, public oratory, and American history will find this notable study an invaluable research tool.


Patrick Geddes And Town Planning

RRP $332.99

Patrick Geddes is considered a forefather of the modern urban planning movement. Patrick Geddes and Planning - a Critical View studies the various, and even opposing ways, in which Geddes has been interpreted up to this day, providing a new reading of his life, writing and plans.Relying on Geddes' extensive writings, the book also provides scholars of planning and related subjects, for the first time, a much needed, long overdue model of his urban theory. Rebutting earlier appreciations of Geddes' sensitive planning, the scheme is presented as a formative and a deterministic paradigm in which City and Society became the subjects of a mutual transformation towards predefined 'ideal' city and 'civilized' society. Current perspectives in Geography and Postcolonialism are used to examine the practice of this theory through Geddes' greatly celebrated ' yet hardly studied - work in India and in Palestine. Studying Geddes' plans for such different cities as Edinburgh, Calcutta and Tel-Aviv, the book suggests a critical reading of Geddes' colonial work, offering a valuable contribution towards the concretisation of the theoretical frameworks and to local historians as well.Geddes' scrutiny is finally presented as a case study for Town Planning as a whole. Tying together for the first time key concepts in cultural geography and colonial urbanism, the book proposes a more vigorous historiography, exposing hidden narratives and past agendas still dominating the disciplinary discourse. Written by a cultural geographer and a town planner, this book offers a rounded, full-length analysis of Geddes' vision and its material manifestation, functioning also as a much needed critical tool to evaluate Modern Town Planning as an academic and practical discipline.

A History Of Cant And Slang Dictionaries

RRP $258.95

The publication of Francis Grose's Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue revolutionized the lexicography of non-standard English. His influence is felt in most of the dictionaries covered in this volume which copy, variously, his carefully documented reliance on written sources, his delighted revelation of first-hand experience of the seedier side of London life, and his word-list. During this period, glossaries of cant are thrown into the shade by dictionaries of slang, which include the language of thieves, but cover a much broader spectrum of non-standard English. While cant represented a practical threat to property and life, slang was a moral threat to the very structure of society. In the 1820s, Pierce Egan's Life in London demonstrated how popular and successful slang literature could be among the masses. This volume also includes the earliest Australian and American slang glossaries, by individuals like James Hardy Vaux (a convict transported three times) and George Matsell (New York's first chief of police).
