Summary
"In this volume, Stephen J. McKenna provides the first book-length treatment of Adam Smith's rhetorical theory, focusing on his theory of rhetorical propriety - the means by which effective communication is adapted to the variables of subject, audience, speaker or writer, purpose, and moment - and the centrality of this concept to his thought."--BOOK JACKET
