Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“…[a] stimulating, wide-ranging book.” — symplokeµ

“To sustain the university and enable it to enrich American culture, we need to redefine the communities dedicated to research. This book creates such a community.” — Cary Nelson

“Cary Nelson exemplifies the committed intellectual. This book recognizes him as a faculty model in just the way one wants: a readable, learned, and politically astute collection full of love and rage.” — Paula Rabinowitz, author of They Must Be Represented: The Politics of Documentary
