Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The book’s insights demonstrate how much we can learn from learn from detailed, extended accounts constructed by scholars long immersed in their inquiry. . . . Model scholarship toward which historians ought to aspire. It is the product of considerable research, immersion in primary materials, and considered judgment born of long familiarity with both Scott and the larger professional context.”
Composition Studies

“It is impossible to write the story of English without dealing with Scott's considerable influence. . . . [this biography] will easily become a standard work in the field, must reading for anyone exploring the century-long tradition of college writing instruction.”
—John Brereton, University of Massachusetts, Boston
