Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
«This is a celebration and a farewell. Twenty years have passed since ‘JCT’ and its conference appeared on the scene: twenty years of innovative and provocative articles, essays, several book-length pieces, and many remarkable conference presentations. I have used the term ‘reconceptualization’ to describe what occurred in the field during the 1970s, but the term is not dramatic enough to express the role that ‘JCT’ and the Bergamo Conference have played. Perhaps ‘intellectual breakthrough’ is more descriptive. You will, I think, agree with my choice of phrases once you’ve moved through this remarkable collection... Let us celebrate what is truly a collective achievement.» (From the introduction by William F. Pinar)
