This is my first foray into ebooks. I’m hoping that 2013 will bring the publication of several more ambitious books than this one, but I have a soft spot in my heart for “A Battle Of Wills.” In its original form, it was one of my first pieces of scholarly yet popular writing to be published in a book (Artistic Strategy And The Rhetoric Of Power
, David Castriota, ed., Southern Illinois University Press
). I was still a student when I wrote the first version. All these years later, though, I’m still fascinated by the subject and am happy and excited to share it with you.
