Terms of Work for Composition: A Materialist Critique

Each chapter traces the ways in which one of the defining terms of composition work, students, politics, academic, traditional, and writing operates as a site for competing constructions of composition s identity."

What a horrid book on composition. Horner ignores ESL concerns, uses language that makes the reading chunky and horribly slow paced, and criticizes everyone without offering any practical, concrete advice other than that work has been commodified. Please.
