Synopsis: This is a bone-crushing confrontation of contemporary questions about the origins and early development of Greek rhetorical theory and practice. It examines a number of important issues from several new perspectives, and offers a more complex and multi-faceted account of the early history of rhetoric than is to be found anywhere else. It is especially unique in bringing together in one place the work of several distinguished scholars of Greek rhetoric and oratory. It takes a revisionist look at the Sophists and explores Greek sites, settings, and culture in ways that challenge long-standing ideas about discourse in the polis. A passionate book full of satyrs rather than philosophers, it is innovative and bold, a treasure-house of provocative ideas.
