Lesson: Don't tie textbooks to political movements
By L. Zill on Apr 18, 2014
I like The Call To Write a lot. I've used it for years because I like his emphasis on the rhetorical approach to argument and the process of composition. Too many comp texts dumb down the process trying to be relevant. But my praise for this edition is tempered because Trimbur bases too many pages on the now passé political movement Occupy Wall Street, which was already dying out before the book came to print. Let that be a lesson to publishers: don't tie textbooks to political movements.
