Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An eloquent exploration of the academic debates over the value of theoretical and practical knowledges, discussions which are swimming like sharks around composition instructors. Dobrin (English, U. of Kansas) takes a practical stance, arguing that theory and practice must inform one another, laying out postmodern thought, postprocess theory, feminism and pedagogy, and radical pedagogy in a comprehensible manner so that they can actually affect the realities of classroom instruction. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
