Univ of New York Press
Presents a clear and forceful counter-statement about tensions and trends in contemporary English studies, offering at the same time a carefully reasoned critique of rationalistic forces within education and culture generally.

Book News
Looks closely at the broad cultural and historical assumptions behind efforts to remake teaching of composition and literature and examines how rooting out of authorial or textual bias is replacing traditional notions of identification and empathy. Discusses how the notion of deep language has fostered a special kind resistance to reforms of the last 200 years, and reveals that traditional practices of teaching are more resistant to dangerous political pressures. For language educators, especially those working in college composition. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
