Recent Surveys indicate that writing-in-the-disciplines programs have been established or projected by more than one-third of the colleges and universities in the United States. The fourteen essays in this volume chart the history of this interdisciplinary development in both the United States and Great Britain and examine the wide range of forms that writing-in-the-disciplines programs have taken in American higher education. The collection outlines the social, intellectual, and political forces that have shaped the movement; presents perspectives on the programs from disciplines outside English studies; describes the relations among writing, reaching, and learning; and considers the future of the movement.

"This work is perhaps the only book-length treatment of the subject to explore the historical roots before turning to the practitioners (a number of whom helped invent the field).... Recommended". Choice.
