Persuasion is a powerful tool. Attorneys use it to win cases. Politicians practice the art to harvest votes. Salespeople and advertisers rely on it to sell everything from soap to skyscrapers. Preachers weave persuasion into their sermons. Parents try to motivate children and children try to influence their parents. Persuasion can help or hurt. It can help people land a job, earn a living, or get a friend through a tough time. But it can also make the unwary spend more money than they should and get them tangled in commitments they don't want to make. 'The Power of Persuasion' examines persuasion from two perspectives: how does effective persuasion work and what can be done to protect oneself from unwanted forms of influence? Topics include: Part 1 -The secret of successful persuasion -Why image or ethos is so important -The emotional hook: Why is it so effective? -Logical persuasion: When to use it -Self-motivation methods Part II -Knowing when and how to resist advertising and sales -Contending with cults -What to do about the power of film and television -Political persuasion: What to watch for -The link between persuasion and ethics

`Truth uncompromisingly told will always have its ragged edges.' So wrote Melville of Billy Budd, Sailor, among the greatest of his works and, in its richness and ambiguity, among the most problematic. As the critic E. L. Grant Watson writes, `In this short history of the impressment and hanging of a handsome sailor-boy are to be discovered problems as profound as those which puzzle us in the pages of the Gospels.' Outwardly a compelling narrative of events aboard a British man-of-war during the turmoil of the Napoleonic Wars, Billy Budd, Sailor is a nautical recasting of the Fall, a parable of good and evil, a meditation on justice and political governance, and a searching portrait of three extraordinary men. The passion it has aroused in its readers over the years is a measure of how deeply it addresses some of the fundamental questions of experience that every age must reexamine for itself. The selection in this volume represents the best of Melville's shorter fiction, and uses the most authoritative texts. The eight shorter tales included here were composed during Melville's years as a magazine writer in the mid 1850's and establish him, along with Hawthorne and Poe, as the greatest American story writer of his age. Several of the tales - Bartleby the Scrivener, Benito Cereno, The Encantadas, The Paradise of Bachelors and the Tartarus of Maids - are acknowledged masterpieces of their genres. All show Melville a master of irony, point-of-view, and tone whose fables ripple out in nearly endless circles of meaning. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
