Textual Intervention: Critical and Creative Strategies
for Literary Studies
This is a handbook/rhetoric/textbook that achieves the most practicable combination of literary and pedagogical theory I have ever seen. It is oriented equally to composition and analysis, to creative and critical writing. Pope's version of "textual studies as praxis" is energetic and highly developed; it is, in his words, "writing in process generated through negotiation in groups, often in a heterogeneous range of genres, materials and media". Pope's presentation is never anything but clear, lively, and often humorous-"Fortunately," as he admits, "all this is easier done than said". With the aim of stimulating (re)writing in all things, he has devised strategies and techniques for what he calls "heuristic interactive learning." He never flinches from the necessity, difficulty, or exhilaration of theory, and he refuses to accommodate academic distinctions often maintained between creative writing and critical analysis; basic, introductory, and advanced writing; invention, arrangement, and style; and composition, cultural, and literary studies." David E. Stacey

I am a Muslim Anarcho-feminist: earth-universe is my home; humankind my family; the libraries of the world are my mind; a mother's tears my heart; the qur'an my soul; non-violence my creed; peace and justice my purpose; dialogue, education and critical reflection my toolbox.

Four Horsemen, Ross Ashcroft, 2012
Twenty-three leading thinkers explain how the world really works and the fundamental flaws in the economic system which have brought our civilization to the brink of disaster. The film pulls no punches in describing the consequences of continued inaction – but its message is one of hope. If more people can equip themselves with a better understanding of how the world really works, then the systems and structures that condemn billions to poverty or chronic insecurity can at last be overturned.
