Rhetoric for Radicals :
A Handbook for Twenty-First Century Activists

By Jason Del Gandio


Radicals have important messages to deliver but are too often 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 and not to underestimate the challenge of breaking new ground and winning new converts.

Activists often suffer from a credibility gap because of their lack of a coherent message and lack of strategic delivery. Rhetoric for Radicals addresses and helps solve these problems. It provides 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.

Jason Del Gandio is a lecturer at Temple University in Philadelphia. He is a post-Seattle activist who has worked on globalization and free/fair trade issues, anti-war campaigns and Latin American solidarity.

CMAQ: Vie associative

Collectif à Québec: n'existe plus.

Ceci est un média alternatif de publication ouverte. Le collectif CMAQ, qui gère la validation des contributions sur le Indymedia-Québec, n'endosse aucunement les propos et ne juge pas de la véracité des informations. Ce sont les commentaires des Internautes, comme vous, qui servent à évaluer la qualité de l'information. Nous avons néanmoins une Politique éditoriale , qui essentiellement demande que les contributions portent sur une question d'émancipation et ne proviennent pas de médias commerciaux.

This is an alternative media using open publishing. The CMAQ collective, who validates the posts submitted on the Indymedia-Quebec, does not endorse in any way the opinions and statements and does not judge if the information is correct or true. The quality of the information is evaluated by the comments from Internet surfers, like yourself. We nonetheless have an Editorial Policy , which essentially requires that posts be related to questions of emancipation and does not come from a commercial media.
