Public Speaking and Civic Engagement, 2/e promotes public speaking as a vehicle for civic engagement by showing students how, in light of recent historic political and economic changes, to participate in the ongoing deliberations facing our society through critical thinking, productive dialogue, sound arguments, and an ethic of advocacy. This text envisions public speaking as a vehicle for participation in the current discussions that are working toward achieving common good. It advocates for being an engaged citizen of democracy by communicating ideas and information that could benefit and improve one's community. By using specific examples -- of current events such as the 2008 Presidential Election and the worst economic downturn to occur since the Great Depression, as well as examples of students, citizens engaged in community affairs, and historic and contemporary public figures -- the book instructs students on how to address substantive issues that impact their communities at local, state, national, and international levels. Public Speaking and Civic Engagement, 2/e teaches through a clear, engaging narrative and uses special features that demonstrate specific ways in which students and citizens can speak. It encourages students to embrace their right to free speech granted and protected by the First Amendment and illustrates the most effective means of utilizing it in today's society.
