An Introduction to Composition Studies

Edited by Erika Lindemann and Gary Tate

This collection of nine commissioned essays introduces the non-specialist to the rapidly evolving field of composition studies, discussing the nature of the field, the relationship between composition and rhetoric and between theory and practice, the history of the discipline, its bibliographic sources and problems, its methods of research, teaching writing, and the politics of the profession. With brief bibliographies of further readings and a concluding personal essay describing a life in the field, this book will provide an invaluable overview of composition studies.
