    Ways to the West

    Tim Sullivan is a city planner, urban designer, and writer whose professional focus is the reshaping of cities and com-munities through alternative transpor-tation planning. He is the author of No Communication with the Sea: Searching for an Urban Future in the Great Basin. He lives in Salt Lake City with his wife and two children.

    In Ways to the West, Tim Sullivan embarks on a car-less road trip through the Intermountain West, exploring how the region is taking on what may be its greatest challenge: sustainable transporta-tion. Combining personal travel narrative, histori-cal research, and his professional expertise in urban planning, Sullivan takes a critical yet optimistic and often humorous look at how contemporary Western cities are making themselves more hospitable to a life less centered on the personal vehicle.

    The modern West was built by the automobile, but so much driving has jeopardized the Wests mystic hold on the American future. At first, auto-mobility heightened the things that made the West great, but love became dependence, and depen-dence became addiction. Via his travels by bicycle, bus, and train through Las Vegas, Phoenix, Denver, Boise, Salt Lake City, and Portland, Sullivan cap-tures the modern transportation evolution tak-ing place across the region and the resulting ways in which contemporary Western communities are reinterpreting classic American values like mobility, opportunity, adventure, and freedom.

    Finding a West created, lost, and reclaimed, Ways to the West will be of great interest to anyone curious about sustainable transportation and the history, geography, and culture of the American West.

    How Getting Out of Our Cars Is Reclaiming Americas Frontier

    Tim Sullivan

    This book should be read by every planner, transportation engineer, city commissioner, councilman, mayor, economic development director, and developer.

    John inglish, former CEO, Utah Transit Authority

    A fascinating read that gives new insight into the transportation evolution that is now taking place across this region.

    Stan Cuba, a graduate of Columbia University in New York, is associate

    curator of the Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art in Denver. In addi-tion to curating and writing catalogs for many exhibits of regional art, he

    has written John F. Carlson and Artists of the Broadmoor Academy and coauthored The Art of Charles Partridge Adams, The

    Colorado Book, and Pikes Peak Vision: The Broadmoor Art Academy, 19191945.

    In 1928, the newly organized Denver Artists Guild held its inaugural exhibition in downtown Denver. Little did the participants realize that their initial effort would survive the Great Depression and World War IIand then outlive all of the groups fifty-two charter members.

    The guilds founders worked in many media and pursued a variety of styles. In addition to the oils and watercolors one would expect were master-ful pastels by Elsie Haddon Haynes, photographs by Laura Gilpin, sculpture by Gladys Caldwell Fisher and Arnold Rnnebeck, ceramics by Anne Van Briggle Ritter and Paul St. Gaudens, and col-lages by Pansy Stockton. Styles included real-ism, impressionism, regionalism, surrealism, and abstraction. Murals by Allen True, Vance Kirkland, John E. Thompson, Louise Ronnebeck, and others graced public and private buildingssecular and religiousin Colorado and throughout the United States. The guilds artists didnt just contribute to the fine and decorative arts of Colorado; they enhanced the national reputation of the state.

    Then, in 1948, the Denver Artists Guild became the stage for a great public debate pitting tradi-tional against modern. The twenty-year-old guild split apart as modernists bolted to form their own group, the Fifteen Colorado Artists. It was a semi-nal moment: some of the guilds artists became great modernists, while others remained great traditionalists.

    Enhanced by period photographs and repro-ductions of the founding members works, The Denver Artists Guild chronicles a vibrant yet over-looked chapter of Colorados cultural history. The book includes a walking tour of guild members paintings and sculptures viewable in Denver and elsewhere in Colorado, by Leah Ness and author Stan Cuba.

    The Verging Cities

    Natalie Scenters-Zapico is from the sister cities of El Paso, Texas, United States, and Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. Her poems have appeared in journals including The Believer, American Poets, Prairie Schooner, West Branch, and Palabra.

    From undocumented men named Angel to angels falling from the sky, Natalie Scenters-Zapicos gripping debut collection, The Verging Cities, is filled with explorations of immigration and mar-riage, narco-violence and femicide, and angels in the domestic sphere. Deeply rooted along the US-Mexico border in the sister cities of El Paso, Texas, and Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua, these poems give a brave new voice to the ways in which inter-national politics affect the individual. Composed in a variety of forms, from sonnet and epithalamium to endnotes and field notes, each poem distills vio-lent stories of narcos, undocumented immigrants, border patrol agents, and the people who fall in love with each other and their traumas.

    Heidi Kim is assistant professor of English and comparative literature at

    the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has published essays

    on the food policies of the Japanese American incarceration camps and the legacy of Korematsu v. United States and

    regularly teaches courses devoted to the history and literature of Japanese

    American incarceration.

    Crafted from George Hoshidas diary and mem-oir, as well as letters faithfully exchanged with his wife Tamae, Taken from the Paradise Isle is an inti-mate account of the anger, resignation, philosophy, optimism, and love with which the Hoshida family endured their separation and incarceration during World War II.

    George and Tamae Hoshida and their children were an American family of Japanese ancestry who lived in Hawaii. In 1942, George was arrested as a potentially dangerous alien and interned in a series of camps over the next two years. Meanwhile, forced to leave her handicapped eldest daugh-ter behind in a nursing home in Hawaii, Tamae and three daughters, including a newborn, were incarcerated at the Jerome Relocation Center in Arkansas. George and Tamae regularly exchanged letters during this time, and George maintained a diary including personal thoughts, watercolors, and sketches. In Taken from the Paradise Isle these sources are bolstered by extensive archival documents and editor Heidi Kims historical contextualization, providing a new and important perspective on the tragedy of the incarceration as it affected Japanese American families in Hawaii.

    This personal narrative of the Japanese American experience adds to the growing testi-mony of memoirs and oral histories that illumi-nate the emotional, psychological, physical, and economic toll suffered by Nikkei as the result of the violation of their civil rights during World War II.

    From the Obatas to Hatsuko Mary Higuchi, Japanese American artists depicted their lives in American concentration camps as they sought to express the sorrows engendered by incarceration. All this and more is captured by Heidi Kims marvelous selection of George Hoshidas artwork and correspondence in Taken from the Paradise Isle, which poignantly documents Georges desperate attempts to keep his family intact.

    Including feminist Alice Dickerson Montemayor, San Antonio attorney Gus Garca, civil rights activist and scholar Ernesto Galarza, the subjects of these biographies include some of the most prominent idealists and actors of the time. Whether debating in a court of law, writing for a major newspaper, producing reports for gov-ernmental agencies, organizing workers, holding public office, or otherwise shaping space for the Mexican American identity in the United States, these subjects embody the core values and diversity of their generation.

    More than a chronicle of personalities who left their mark on Mexican American history, Leaders of the Mexican American Generation cements this com-munity as a major player in the history of activism and civil rights in the United States. It is a rich col-lection of historical biographies that will enlighten and enliven our understanding of Mexican American history.

    Transient Landscapes

    nAt u r A l hi s to ry

    Landscapethe unique combination of landforms, plants, animals, and weather that compose any natural placeis inherently transient. Each essay in Transient Landscapes introduces this idea of a con-stantly metamorphosing global landscape, reveal-ing how to see the ubiquity of landscape transience, both that which results through Earths natural environmental and climatological processes and that which comes from human intervention.

    The essays are grouped by type of environ-mental change: long-term, large-scale transforma-tion driven by geologic forces such as tectonic uplift and volcanism; natural variability at shorter time scales, such as seasonal flooding; and modifications resulting from human activities, such as timber harvest, land drainage, and pollution. Each essay is set in a unique geographic locationincluding such diverse places as New Zealand, Northern California, Costa Rica, and the Scottish Highlandsand is largely drawn from Wohls personal experi-ence researching in the field.

    A combination of travel writing, nature writ-ing, and science writing, Transient Landscapes is a beautiful and thoughtful journey through the natu-ral world.

    Practically Joking

    Moira Marsh is the subject librarian for anthropology, sociology, folklore, and comparative literature at the Indiana University Bloomington Libraries. She holds a PhD in folklore from Indiana University, and her research on practi-cal jokes, cross-cultural approaches to laughter, and humor theory has been published in folklore journals, text-books, and encyclopedias.

    In Practically Joking, the first full-length study of the practical joke, Moira Marsh examines the value, artistry, and social significance of this ancient and pervasive form of vernacular expression.

    Though they are sometimes dismissed as the lowest form of humor, practical jokes come from a lively tradition of expressive play. They can reveal both sophistication and intellectual satisfaction, with the best demanding significant skill and talent not only to conceive but also to execute. Practically Joking establishes the practical joke as a folk art form subject to critical evaluation by both practitio-ners and audiences, operating under the guidance of local aesthetic and ethical canons.

    Marsh studies the range of genres that pranks comprise; offers a theoretical look at the reception of practical jokes based on benign transgressiona theory that sees humor as playful violationand uses real-life examples of practical jokes in context to establish the forms varieties and meanings as an independent genre, as well as its inextricable rela-tionship with a range of folklore forms. Scholars of folklore, humor, and popular culture will find much of interest in Practically Joking.

    Rebecca Prentice is a lecturer in anthro-pology at the University of Sussex in

    Brighton, UK. Her research on garment workers in Trinidad was funded by the

    Wenner-Gren Foundation, the Economic and Social Research Council (UK), and

    the Royal Anthropological Institute.

    Thiefing a Chance

    An t h r o P o l o g y

    When an IMF-backed program of liberalization opened Trinidads borders to foreign ready-made apparel, global competition damaged the local industry and unraveled worker entitlements and expectations but also presented new economic opportunities for engaging the global market. This fascinating ethnography explores contempo-rary life in the Signature Fashions garment factory, where the workers attempt to exploit gaps in these new labor configurations through illicit and infor-mal uses of the factory, a practice they colloquially refer to as thiefing a chance.

    Drawing on fifteen months of fieldwork, author Rebecca Prentice combines a vivid picture of factory life, first-person accounts, and anthropo-logical analysis to explore how economic restruc-turing has been negotiated, lived, and recounted by women working in the garment industry dur-ing Trinidads transition to a neoliberal economy. Through careful social coordination, the workers thief by copying patterns, taking portions of fab-ric, teaching themselves how to operate machines, and wearing their work outside the factory. Even so, the workers describe their thiefing as a per-sonal, individualistic enterprise rather than a form of collective resistance to workplace authority. By making and taking furtive opportunities, they embrace a vision of themselves as enterprising sub-jects while actively complying with the competitive demands of a neoliberal economic order.

    Prentice presents the factory not as a stable institution but instead as a material and social space in which the projects, plans, and desires of workers and their employers become aligned and misaligned, at some moments in deep harmony and at others in rancorous conflict. Arguing for the productive power of the informal and illicit, Thiefing a Chance contributes to anthropological debates about the very nature of neoliberal capital-ism and will be of great interest to undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty in anthro-pology, labor studies, Caribbean studies, and devel-opment studies.

    Factory Work, Illicit Labor, and Neoliberal Subjectivities in Trinidad

    Rebecca Prentice

    Thiefing a Chance takes readers on an eye-opening adventure inside a Trinidadian garment factory where women display ingenuous and often cooperative ways to make garments for their own clients alongside their legitimate work. In this innovative ethnographic work, Prentice uses lively stories and ro-bust cultural theory to broaden and deepen our understanding of both the forms and meaning of Carib-bean cunning and pride.

    The Ecology of Pastoralism

    In The Ecology of Pastoralism, diverse contributions from archaeologists and ethnographers address pastoralisms significant impact on humanitys basic subsistence and survival, focusing on the net-work of social, political, and religious institutions existing within various societies dependent on ani-mal husbandry.

    Pastoral peoples, both past and present, have organized their relationships with certain animals to maximize their ability to survive and adapt to a wide range of conditions over time. Contributors show that despite differences in landscape, envi-ronment, and administrative and political struc-tures, these societies share a major characteristichigh flexibility. Based partially on the adaptability of various domestic animals to difficult environ-ments and partially on the ability of people to establish networks allowing them to accommodate political, social, and economic needs, this flexibility is key to the survival of complex pastoral systems and serves as the connection among the varied cul-tures in the volume.

    In The Ecology of Pastoralism, a variety of case studies from a broad geographic sampling uses archaeological and contemporary data and offers a new perspective on the study of pastoralism, mak-ing this volume a valuable contribution to current research in the area.

    Subjects and Narratives in Archaeology

    Ar C h A e o l o g y

    Seeking to move beyond the customary limits of archaeological prose and representation, Subjects and Narratives in Archaeology presents archaeology in a variety of nontraditional formats. The vol-ume demonstrates that visual art, creative nonfic-tion, archaeological fiction, video, drama, and other artistic pursuits have much to offer archaeological interpretation and analysis.

    Chapters in the volume are augmented by nar-rative, poetry, paintings, dialogues, online data-bases, videos, audio files, and slideshows. The work will be available in print and as an enhanced ebook that incorporates and showcases the multi-media elements in archaeological narrative. While exploring these new and not-so-new forms, the contributors discuss the boundaries and connec-tions between empirical data and archaeological imagination.

    Both a critique and an experiment, Subjects and Narratives in Archaeology addresses the goals, advantages, and difficulties of alternative forms of archaeological representation. Exploring the idea that academically sound archaeology can be fun to create and read, the book takes a step beyond the boundaries of both traditional archaeology and tra-ditional publishing.

    Edited by Ruth M. Van Dyke and Reinhard Bernbeck

    Subjects and Narratives in Archaeology will prove invaluable not only to new generations of scholars trying to find ways to keep archaeology relevant to a rapidly changing world but also to anyone teaching a class on topics such as professional ethics, archaeolog-ical writing, and archaeology and its place in society.

    Cosmology, Calendars, and Horizon-Based Astronomy in Ancient Mesoamerica is an interdisciplinary tour de force that establishes the critical role astronomy played in the religious and civic lives of the ancient peoples of Mesoamerica. Providing extraordinary examples of how Precolumbian peoples merged ideas about the cosmos with those concerning cal-endar and astronomy, the volume showcases the value of detailed examinations of astronomical data for understanding ancient cultures.

    The volume is divided into three sections: investigations into Mesoamerican horizon-based astronomy, the cosmological principles expressed in Mesoamerican religious imagery and rituals related to astronomy, and the aspects of Mesoamerican cal-endars related to archaeoastronomy. It also provides cutting-edge research on diverse topics such as records of calendar- and horizon-based astronomi-cal observation, Mesoamerican codices (like the Dresden and Borgia codices), iconography of burial assemblages, architectural alignment studies, urban planning, and counting or measuring devices.

    Contributorswho are among the most respected in their fieldsexplore new dimensions in Mesoamerican timekeeping and skywatching in the Olmec, Maya, Teotihuacan, Zapotec, and Aztec cultures. This book will be of great interest to stu-dents and scholars of anthropology, archaeology, art history, and astronomy.

    Ancient Zapotec Religion

    Ancient Zapotec Religion is the first comprehen-sive study of Zapotec religion as it existed in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca on the eve of the Spanish Conquest. Author Michael Lind brings a new perspective, focusing not on underlying theo-logical principles but on the material and spatial expressions of religious practice.

    Using sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spanish colonial documents and archaeological findings related to the time period leading up to the Spanish Conquest, he presents new information on deities, ancestor worship and sacred bundles, the Zapotec cosmos, the priesthood, religious ceremo-nies and rituals, the nature of temples, the distinc-tive features of the sacred and solar calendars, and the religious significance of the murals of Mitlathe most sacred and holy center. He also shows how Zapotec religion served to integrate Zapotec city-state structure throughout the valley of Oaxaca, neighboring mountain regions, and the Isthmus of Tehuantepec.

    Ancient Zapotec Religion is the first in-depth and interdisciplinary book on the Zapotecs and their religious practices and will be of great interest to archaeologists, epigraphers, historians, and special-ists in Native American, Latin American, and reli-gious studies.

    Bridging the Gaps: Integrating Archaeology and History in Oaxaca, Mexico does just that: it bridges the gap between archaeology and history of the Precolumbian, Colonial, and Republican eras of the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, a cultural area encompass-ing several of the longest-enduring literate societies in the world.

    Fourteen case studies from an interdisciplinary group of archaeologists, anthropologists, ethno-historians, and art historians consciously compare and contrast changes and continuities in material culture before and after the Spanish conquest, in Prehispanic and Colonial documents, and in oral traditions rooted in the present but reflecting upon the deep past. Contributors consider both indig-enous and European perspectives while exposing and addressing the difficulties that arise from the application of this conjunctive approach.

    Inspired by the late Dr. Bruce E. Bylands work in the Mixteca, which exemplified the union of archaeological and historical evidence and inspired new generations of scholars, Bridging the Gaps pro-motes the practice of integrative studies to explore the complex intersections between social organi-zation and political alliances, religion and sacred landscape, ethnic identity and mobility, colonial-ism and resistance, and territoriality and economic resources.

    Hospitality and Authoring

    Wr i t i n g st u d i e s

    Hospitality and Authoring, a sequel to the Haswells 2010 volume Authoring, attempts to open the path for hospitality practice in the classroom, making a strong argument for educational use and offer-ing an initial map of the territory for teachers and authors.

    Hospitality is a social and ethical relation-ship not only between host and guest but also between writer and reader or teacher and student. Hospitality initiates, maintains, and completes acts of authoring. This extended essay explores the ways that a true hospitable classroom community can be transformed through assigned reading, one-on-one conferencing, interpretation, syllabus, read-ing journals, topic choice, literacy narrative, writing centers, program administration, teacher training, and many other passing habitations.

    Hospitality and Authoring strives to offer a few possibilities of change to help make college an insti-tution where singular students and singular teach-ers create a room to learn with room to learn.

    Written for those who design, redesign, and assess writing programs, Very Like a Whale is an intensive discussion of writing program assessment issues. Taking its title from Hamlet, the book explores the multifaceted forces that shape writing programs and the central role these programs can and should play in defining college education.

    Given the new era of assessment in higher education, writing programs must provide valid evidence that they are serving students, instructors, administrators, alumni, accreditors, and policymak-ers. This book introduces new conceptualizations associated with assessment, making them clear and available to those in the profession of rhetoric and composition/writing studies. It also offers strate-gies that aid in gathering information about the relative success of a writing program in achieving its identified goals.

    Philosophically and historically aligned with quantitative approaches, White, Elliot, and Peckham use case study and best-practice scholar-ship to demonstrate the applicability of their inno-vative approach, termed Design for Assessment (DFA). Well grounded in assessment theory, Very Like a Whale will be of practical use to new and sea-soned writing program administrators alike, as well as to any educator involved with the accreditation process.

    In Still Life with Rhetoric, Laurie Gries forges con-nections among new materialism, actor network theory, and rhetoric to explore how images become rhetorically active in a digitally networked, global environment. Rather than study how an already-materialized visual text functions within a spe-cific context, Gries investigates how images often circulate and transform across media, genre, and location at viral rates. A four-part case study of Shepard Faireys now iconic Obama Hope image elucidates how images reassemble collective life as they actualize in different versions, enter into vari-ous relations, and spark a firework of activity across the globe.

    While intent on tracking the rhetorical life of a single, multiple image, Still Life with Rhetoric is most concerned with studying rhetoric in motion. To account for an images widespread circulation and emergent activities, Gries introduces icono-graphic trackinga digital research method for tracing an images divergent rhetorical becomings. Yet Gries also articulates a dynamic set of theoreti-cal principles for studying rhetoric as a distributed, generative, and unforeseeable event that is appli-cable beyond the study of visual rhetoric. With an eye toward futuritythe strands of time beyond a things initial moment of production and deliveryStill Life with Rhetoric intends to be taken up by those interested in visual rhetoric, research meth-ods, and theory.

    Naming What We Know examines the core prin-ciples of knowledge in the discipline of writing studies using the lens of threshold conceptsconcepts that are critical for epistemological par-ticipation in a discipline. The first part of the book defines and describes thirty-seven threshold con-cepts of the discipline in entries written by some of the fields most active researchers and teachers, all of whom participated in a collaborative wiki discussion guided by the editors. These entries are clear and accessible, written for an audience of writing scholars, students, and colleagues in other disciplines and policy makers outside the academy. Contributors describe the conceptual background of the field and the principles that run through-out practice, whether in research, teaching, assess-ment, or public work around writing. Chapters in the second part of the book describe the benefits and challenges of using threshold concepts in spe-cific sitesfirst-year writing programs, WAC/WID programs, writing centers, writing majorsand for professional development to present this frame-work in action.

    Naming What We Know opens a dialogue about the concepts that writing scholars and teachers agree are critical and about why those concepts should and do matter to people outside the field.

    Dialectical Rhetoric

    Wr i t i n g st u d i e s

    In Dialectical Rhetoric, Bruce McComiskey argues that the historical conflict between rhetoric and dia-lectic can be overcome in ways useful to both com-position theory and the composition classroom.

    Historically, dialectic has taken two forms in relation to rhetoric. First, it has been the logi-cal development of linear propositions leading to necessary conclusions, a one-dimensional form that was the counterpart of rhetorics in which philo-sophical, metaphysical, and scientific truths were conveyed with as little cognitive interference from language as possible. Second, dialectic has been the topical development of opposed arguments on con-troversial issues and the judgment of their relative strengths and weaknesses, usually in political and legal contexts, a two-dimensional form that was the counterpart of rhetorics in which verbal battles over competing probabilities in public institutions revealed distinct winners and losers.

    The discipline of writing studies is on the brink of developing a new relationship between dialectic and rhetoric, one in which dialectics and rhetorics mediate and negotiate different argu-ments and orientations that are engaged in any rhetorical situation. This new relationship consists of a three-dimensional hybrid art called dialecti-cal rhetoric, whose method is based on five topoi: deconstruction, dialogue, identification, critique, and juxtaposition. Three-dimensional dialecti-cal rhetorics function effectively in a wide variety of discursive contexts, including digital environ-ments, since they can invoke contrasts in stagnant contexts and promote associations in chaotic con-texts. Dialectical Rhetoric focuses more attention on three-dimensional rhetorics from the rhetoric and composition community.

    Bruce McComiskey

    What the author proposes here is not found anywhere else, and his development of a third dialecticthat is, an entirely new model for understanding dialecticwell, this is not mere appropriation; this is theory making.

    utA h stAt e un i v e r s i t y Pr e s sWr i t i n g st u d i e s

    Transiciones is a thorough ethnography of seven Latino students in transition between high school and community college or university. Data gath-ered over two years of interviews with the students, their high school English teachers, and their writing teachers and administrators at postsecondary insti-tutions reveal a rich picture of the conflicted experi-ence of these students as they attempted to balance the demands of schooling with a variety of personal responsibilities.

    Todd Ruecker explores the disconnect between students writing experiences in high school and higher education and examines the integral role that writing plays in college. Considering the almost universal requirement that students take a writing class in their critical first year of college, he contends that it is essential for composition researchers and teachers to gain a fuller understanding of the role they play in sup-porting and hindering Latina and Latino students transition to college.

    Arguing for situating writing programs in larger discussions of high school / college align-ment, student engagement, and retention, Transiciones raises the profile of what writing pro-grams can do, while calling composition teachers, administrators, and scholars to engage in more col-laboration across the institution, across institutions, and across disciplines to make the transition from high school to college writing more successful for this important group of students.

    Assessing the Teaching of Writing

    Wr i t i n g st u d i e s

    Although fraught with politics and other perils, teacher evaluation can contribute in important, positive ways to faculty development at both the individual and the departmental levels. Yet the logistics of creating a valid assessment are compli-cated. Inconsistent methods, rater bias, and over-reliance on student evaluation forms have proven problematic. The essays in Assessing the Teaching of Writing demonstrate constructive ways of evaluat-ing teacher performance, taking into consideration the immense number of variables involved.

    Contributors to the volume examine a range of fundamental issues, including the political con-text of declining state funds in education; growing public critique of the professoriate and demands for accountability resulting from federal policy ini-tiatives like No Child Left Behind; the increasing sophistication of assessment methods and technolo-gies; and the continuing interest in the scholarship of teaching. The first section addresses concerns and advances in assessment methodologies, and the second takes a closer look at unique individual sites and models of assessment. Chapters collectively argue for viewing teacher assessment as a rhetori-cal practice.

    Fostering new ways of thinking about teacher evaluation, Assessing the Teaching of Writing will be of great interest not only to writing program admin-istrators but also to those concerned with faculty development and teacher assessment outside the writing program.

A sequel to the 1996 work Keywords in Composition Studies, this new volume traces the evolution of the fields lexicon, taking into account the wide variety of theoretical, educational, profes-sional, and institutional developments that have redefined it over the past two decades.

    Contributors address the development, trans-formation, and interconnections among thirty-six of the most critical terms that make up writing stud-ies. Looking beyond basic definitions or explana-tions, they explore the multiple layers of meaning within the terms that writing scholars currently use, exchange, and question. Each term featured is a part of the general disciplinary parlance, and each is a highly contested focal point of significant debates about matters of power, identity, and val-ues. Each essay begins with the assumption that its central term is important precisely because its meaning is open and multiplex.

    Keywords in Writing Studies reveals how the key concepts in the field are used and even challenged, rather than advocating particular usages and the particular vision of the field that they imply. The volume will be of great interest to both graduate students and established scholars.

    Anybody reading the collection will come away with fresh insights about how our field has assembled itself, where it has come from and where it now seems to be headed. I imagine that the book will be used in many graduate-level introductions to the field and also by individual readers, who will treat it as something midway between a helpful reference tool and a profes-sional mandala.

    Writing Majors

    Wr i t i n g st u d i e s

    The writing major is among the most exciting scenes in the evolving American university. Writing Majors is a collection of firsthand descriptions of the origins, growth, and transformations of eighteen different programs. The chapters provide useful administrative insight, benchmark information, and even inspiration for new curricular configurations from a range of institutions.

    A practical sourcebook for those who are build-ing, revising, or administering their own writ-ing majors, this volume also serves as a historical archive of a particular instance of growth and trans-formation in American higher education. Revealing bureaucratic, practical, and institutional matters as well as academic ideals and ideologies, each pro-file includes sections providing a detailed program review and rationale, an implementation narrative, and reflection and prospection about the program.

    Documenting eighteen stories of writing major programs in various stages of formation, preserva-tion, and reform and exposing the contingencies of their local and material constitution, Writing Majors speaks as much to the how to of building writing major programs as to the larger what, why, and how of institutional growth and change.

    This volume is sure to be a rallying point for further research, in that it has demonstrated conclusively that market exchange constitutes a dynamic compo-nent of human behavior and that it was one among many mechanisms by which people acquired desired goods as part of a measured, calculated, and con-scious engagement in economic activities at the level of both the household and the state."

    MoniCA l. sMith, American Anthropologist

    With a quiet seriousness and unpretentious man-ner, Archaeological Approaches to Market Exchange in Ancient Societies resets the terms of research on the topic of market exchange . . . this coming-of-age book hopefully marks a new intel-lectual independence and spirit of innovation within the discipline.

    PAtriCiA MCAnAny, Journal of Field Archaeology

    These significant contributions to economic anthro-pology should encourage comparative cross-cultural dialogues and foster new approaches to the study of premodern market exchange . . . The Garraty and Stark volume is a giant step forward in understand-ing market systems, market places, and sociocultural and religious parameters that impinge upon the economic structure of preindustrial societies.
