really liked it
bookshelves: comparative-rhetoric

I thought this was a thoroughly approachable comparative text. Not only does Mao bring in some very interesting theoretical connections, but I like how he suggests praxis through taking us into his classroom, where his students encounter the Other and the Other-in-Me. He ends with a case study because, he implies, Chinese American rhetoric always exists in a case study and cannot be essentialized.
