Reviews

"One of the interesting and revealing features ofTeachers, Discourses, and Authority in the Postmodern Composition Classroom is that the author uses her personal experience as an English teacher in China and her extensive knowledge of educational movements during the Cultural Revolution to support her theoretical philosophical discussions. This personal dimension adds flesh and blood to an already insightful, intelligent, and revealing analysis. The work represents composition scholarship at its most mature and sophisticated." - Gary A. Olson, From the Foreword
