The African Yearbook of Rhetoric is motivated by the belief, supported by observation, that a democracy that does not provide its people with the means to argue, rhetoric, is bound to be perverted. This journal is impelled by the conviction, borne by international scholarship in rhetoric, that a duty of deliberation is placed on both governed and government, and is fundamental to the reasonable exercise of citizenship. Scholars, in turn, are duty-bound to interrogate rhetorical processes and truth-making beliefs that instruct, or destroy life in a democracy.
The journal prefers to publish invited papers only, on set themes. Authors who would like to offer papers should direct their enquiries to: The Editor in Chief: firstname.lastname@example.org
