From the Publisher
“Educators will be faced soon, if they are not now, with questions on how to integrate the computer into the curriculum, and one of the first questions will be how to utilize the computer in teaching writing. This book represents a pioneering effort in this direction.” — D. LaMont Johnson, Texas Tech University

“Montague clearly grasps the paradox—that computer science not only has created problems, but that it also holds the promise of resolve for those same problems.” — Daniel L. Peterson, Northern Arizona University
