When Kenneth Burke conceived his celebrated “Motivorum” project in

the 1940s and 1950s, he envisioned it in three parts. While the third

part, A Symbolic of Motives, was never finished, A Grammar of

Motives (1945) and A Rhetoric of Motives (1950) have become

canonical theoretical documents. A Rhetoric of Motives was originally

intended to be a two-part book.

 

Here at last is the second volume of A Rhetoric of Motives, the

until-now unpublished War of Words. Burke brilliantly exposes the

rhetorical devices that sponsor war in the name of peace.

Discouraging militarism during the Cold War even as it catalogues

belligerent persuasive strategies and tactics that are still in use today,

The War of Words reveals how popular news media outlets can,

wittingly or not, foment international tensions and armaments during

tumultuous political periods. This authoritative edition includes an

introduction from the editors explaining the compositional history and

cultural contexts of both The War of Words and A Rhetoric of Motives.

The War of Words illuminates the study of modern rhetoric even as it

deepens our understanding of post–World War II politics.
