"Curriculum: Toward New Identities represents an effort to 'prgoress beyond a certain primitive point' (p.xiii) through new theorizing that serves to frame our deepest constructions, autobiographical reflections, sociological imaginations, and lived experiences of the ever-changing polyglot culture we face in today's world...For all educators open to and interested in the ways in which postructuralism, postmodernism, and cultural studies are literally shape-shifting our lives and our work, this collection offers wonderfully unsettling examples of our 'curriculum club' for the new millenium." -- Linguistics and Education
