Semiotics, Post-Structuralism and Critical Rhetoric: Sources

Comprehensive for peer reviewed articles in rhetoric and communication journals. Selected books. Excludes works by the continental authors being discussed, and works from other fields, to prevent this bibliography from becoming impossibly large. May subdivide by flavor if it becomes necessary (e.g general/comparative, A to Z).
