MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book is addressed to scholars in the fields of academic discourse and academic writing, writing instructors, community college administrators, and those who are interested in academic discourse, community college education, education policy as well as education for social change. ... A very complete, well-exemplified and detailed data analysis and a clear and accessible writing style make the book a successful example of a critical view of the academic writing classroom and an enticing invitation to reflection." (Pamela Olmos-Lopez, Discourse & Society, Vol. 28 (6), 2017)
