Greatly expanded over past years, this volume lists and annotates 2,054 articles, books, dissertations, and papers that, with few exceptions, appeared in 1993. It includes an index of authors and editors, a subject index, and entries cross-referenced according to subject matter.
Entries in this present volume include topics with which rhetoricians and compositionists have always concerned themselves. The 1993 volume is, however, the largest CCCC Bibliography so far, with many of its titles dealing with the relationship of composition and rhetoric to critical theory, gender issues, and cultural studies. This volume also differs from earlier editions in that it contains a new section on electronic discussion groups or listservs, including information on how readers may join the various groups.
The CCCC Bibliography of Composition and Rhetoric draws on a large group of experts in the field. Annotationswhich accompany every entry in this volume describe a publication’s contents and are intended to help users determine its usefulness. Annotations are brief and are meant to be descriptive, not evaluative: they explain what an entry is about but leave readers free to judge for themselves the work’s merits.
