With a practical focus on persuasive writing strategies, Advanced Legal Writing: Theory and Strategies in Persuasive Writing explores three classical techniques: logos, pathos, and ethos, and provides students with a thorough introduction to the elements of rhetorical style. Unlike many other advanced legal writing texts, which tend to focus on a document-specific approach, this unique coursebook focuses on classical writing strategies that students can apply to a wide range of settings. The depth and scope of this text make it appropriate for upper-level legal writing courses. The Third Edition has been expanded to include the use of movies and other popular culture media in chapters dealing with literary references. There have also been substantial revisions to the chapter on policy. Features: Comprehensive coverage of the technical aspects of rhetorical style: metaphor, literary allusion, and figures of speech.

The study of legal history has a broad application that extends well beyond the interests of legal historians. An attorney arguing a case today may need to cite cases that are decades or even centuries old, and historians studying political or cultural history often encounter legal issues that affect their main subjects. Both groups need to understand the laws and legal practices of past eras. This essential reference is intended for the many nonspecialists who need to enter this arcane and often tricky area of research.

Alle Bildgeschichten arbeiten im Prinzip mit demselben bildlichen Inventar, seien sie komplex oder simpel, westlicher oder östlicher Herkunft, klassisch oder hybrid. Dieses Buch bietet eine Systematisierung des Mediums Comic und eine Analyse seiner Erzählform. Der Autor isoliert, beschreibt und untersucht die Elemente von Comics, um dann ihr Zusammenwirken bestimmen zu können. Auf diese Weise wird die zugrunde liegende Funktionsweise aller Bildgeschichten deutlich – zugleich aber auch die Varianz, die individuelle Bildgeschichten aufweisen. Die zweite Auflage wurde überarbeitet und erweitert. Ein erfreulich verständlich geschriebenes Buch, das beinahe jeden Aspekt des Mediums Comic berücksichtigt.« (kino-zeit.de)
