Editorial Reviews


“Many of these essays, showing the benefits of seeing rhetoric as a weapon, are excellent models for cutting edge scholarship. The book doesn’t have a single political agenda and, in our day of polarized discourse, that ensures that everyone will love and hate something in the collection.” —Trish Roberts-Miller, University of Texas-Austin

“So important and timely. Each chapter considers in different ways the consequences of our failure to address weaponized digital rhetorics, especially when such rhetorics result in mass disinformation campaigns. What’s especially unique about this volume is that it includes both academic and practitioner perspectives. The other thing I really love about this book is the ways it integrates Marxist material rhetorics (and even Foucault) in meaningful, contemporary ways. For all of the ways our field has moved on into ‘new’ materialisms and other re-imaginings of extant theories, we sometimes lose sight of these foundational scholarly contributions.” —Christa B. Teston, The Ohio State University

Rhet-Ops deserves your attention as a scholar and a citizen.” —Rhetoric Society Quarterly

5.0 out of 5 stars An important book!
By Steven B. Katz on January 11, 2020
This is a great and important collection of essays that addresses a problem heretofore not addressed: the rhetoric (a field that studies language/media/persuasion) of the weaponization of digital communication (from online games to social media to cyber hacking to information warfare). The editors have done a great job of situating the book in the field(s) of rhetoric and technical communication while also making it the gook pragmatic and accessible. Both Intro/postscript and chapters raise crucial questions of ethics that need to be considered in and out of academia.
