A provocative collaboration by some of the foremost scholars in composition studies, this book explores both the theoretical and pedagogical approaches to "resistance." The contributors clarify not only the meaning(s) of resistance, through both a political and historical framework, but also demonstrate how the manifestation of resistance plays out in the writing classroom.

Review quote

"Strikes a sound balance between discussions of theory and discussions of pedagogy." -- Nels P. Highberg, Assistant Director of Composition, University of Illinois at Chicago "This is not a small safe collection of scholarly minutiae--it is intellectually rigorous work that matters. Every one of the essays has important consequences either for the field and discipline of comp-rhet or for teachers of comp-rhet or (most often) both." -- James Zebroski, author of Thinking Through Theory: Vygotskian Perspectives on the Teaching of Writing
