Summary: This multicultural reader for first-year composition courses poses critical questions about American culture and the construction of identity. Beyond Borders includes both conventional writing (essays, poems, and short fiction) and less conventional works (photographs, advertisements, graphic novels, and maps). The thematically arranged readings raise ideas about both individual and group identity. Questions at the end of each selection and each chapter raise the lev ...show moreel of inquiry from chapter to chapter. The interactive format shows students how to read and write by freely crossing the borders between writer and reader, student and critic, and consumer and producer.

The Second Edition offers a more upbeat view of multiculturalism and the border concept, emphasizing how examining borders can awaken readers' curiosity and imagination.

  • New! Reflecting the direction of contemporary writing programs, the Second Edition features expanded material on the writing process, with more writing activities throughout, a stronger focus on research and argument, and less emphasis on personal experience.
  • New! To better accommodate the focus of a first-year composition course, the new edition contains a greater number of familiar and accessible selections, a larger proportion of essays, and more textual background.
  • New! New selections include works by Anna Deveare Smith, Lester Bangs, John Leonard, Tim O'Brien, bell hooks, and Robert Pinsky.
  • New! Image Portfolio of photographs, providing inspiration for visual analysis and writing, is now in full color.
  • A strong cultural emphasis features such themes as the myths and stories that shape identity; the role of environmental and cultural factors in producing a sense of belonging or alienation; and the social and imaginative dimensions of communities, from the American frontier to cyberspace. Beyond Borders also devotes careful attention to the construction and negotiation of differences across gender, ethnicity, race, and class.
  • The Beyond Borders web site provides a framework for critical thinking about cyberspace and for electronic fieldwork into issues of identity, community, place, and difference.
