"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
