In WRITERS WITHOUT BORDERS, Lynn Z. Bloom presents groundbreaking research on the nature of essays and on the political, philosophical, ethical, and pragmatic considerations that influence how we read, write, and teach them in times troubled by terrorism, transgressive students, and uses and abuses of the Internet. WRITERS WITHOUT BORDERS reinforces Bloom's reputation for presenting innovative and sophisticated research with a writer's art and a teacher's heart. Each of the eleven essays addresses in its own way the essay itself as one way to live and learn with others. LAUER SERIES IN RHETORIC AND COMPOSITION.
