description: Rhetoric for Radicals
A Handbook for Twenty-First Century Activists
By Jason Del Gandio

Radicals have important messages to deliver but are often so caught up  
in the passion of their causes that they lose sight of effective  
communication -- which is their biggest tool. Crucial to the cause is  
the ability to speak with clarity and intelligence, without  
underestimating the challenge of breaking new ground and winning new  
converts.

Activists often suffer from a credibility gap because of their lack of  
coherent message and strategic delivery. Rhetoric for Radicals  
addresses and helps solve these problems. It provides the tools to  
develop the all-important communication skills necessary to be  
effectively heard. If you accept that communication creates the social  
world, then you will agree that changing the way we communicate can  
change the world.

Rhetoric for Radicals provides practical guidelines for public  
speaking, writing, conversation, persuasion, political correctness,  
propaganda analysis, street theatrics and new languages. Chapters  
include:

* Streets, Rhetoric, and Revolution
* A Call for Rhetorical Action
* Skills for the Multitude
* The Power of Language
* Body Rhetoric
* Twenty-First Century Radical Rhetoric

Geared to college-aged radical activists and organizers, this book  
will also appeal to activists of any age who want to sharpen their  
messages.
