This book uses the 2015 Charleston shooting as a case study to analyze the connections between race, rhetoric, religion, and the growing trend of mass gun violence in the United States. The authors claim that this analysis fills a gap in rhetorical scholarship that can lead to increased understanding of the causes and motivations of these crimes.

Arvustused

Rhetoric, Race, Religion, and the Charleston Shootings: Was Blind But Now I See makes vital contributions to scholarly and public understanding of the Mother Emanuel tragedy. The essays within this volume are historically-grounded, theoretically-sophisticated, and extremely relevant to our contemporary context; they provide novel frames for rethinking and for thinking more deeply about white supremacist gun violence in America. Moreover, this collection's incisive and multi-faceted engagement with the politics of memory, forgetting, and forgiveness make it an illuminating text for classroom engagement and a go-to resource for scholars' bookshelves.--Maegan Parker Brooks, Willamette University
