Critical Terms

Series Description
Alan G. Thomas, Acquiring Editor
Volumes in the Critical Terms series provide rigorous but accessible introductions to their field, suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. The key words selected for discussion are ones commonly used in the field, fundamental rather than technical. They are terms often used uncritically, yet they trail histories and meanings that beg to be examined. The volumes’ contributors provide elegant, expansive essays on each term, probing the issues it raises, and then putting theory into practice by showing the critical strategies it permits.
