Xing Lu is a professor in the College of Communication at DePaul University. A native of China, Lu received her undergraduate degree in China, her M.A. in Australia, and her Ph.D. from the University of Oregon. She is also the author of Rhetoric of the Chinese Cultural Revolution.
"The author's three main aims are: first, to open up the Eurocentric canon by introducing the Chinese domain of rhetorical awareness and practices; secondly, to analyze this implicit Chinese rhetorical tradition on the basis of various uses of and statements about language; and thirdly, to initiate a cross-cultural study of rhetoric through a comparison with Western rhetorical practices."—Journal of Asian Studies
"A useful introduction to a wealth of Chinese material of potential interest over a very broad literary, historical, and philosophical range. . . . Many Classicist readers will profit from exposure to this rich material."—Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"While she skillfully explicates ancient Chinese language and persuasion theory in a way that respects its cultural specificity, Lu also manages to compare it fruitfully to classical Greek rhetorical theory in a way that illuminates both while obscuring neither. Her book is a model of careful historical reconstruction."—Edward Schiappa
