This second edition of the comprehensive guide to the history and contemporary situation of rhetoric provides a useful overview of the themes related to the stylistic aspects of individual genres of rhetoric. The publication is based on the scholar's knowledge of the thousand-year history of the field as well as on modern interpretation methods based on rhetoric. Using examples from contemporary Czech media discourse, the book aptly links two tendencies in rhetoric: theoretical or contemplative and practical or instructional. The book will be appreciated by both Czech language professionals and non-professionals interested in the speech culture and literary theory.
