Editorial Reviews


" Sharon Stevens has immersed herself in the complex debate over ranching and conservation in southern Arizona and emerged with valuable sensitivity and insight. Rhetoric and hyperbole typically overwhelm constructive dialogue on the topic, but Stevens reveals how language, people and places can engage and transform one another--as she herself was transformed--and create new possibilities." --Nathan Sayre, University of California at Berkeley

About the Author

Sharon McKenzie Stevens received her PhD in rhetoric, composition, and the teaching of English from the University of Arizona. She is a lecturer in the School of English and Media Studies at Massey University in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
From talking around, through and over using the same words but perceived different meanings, we frequently find ourselves unnecessarily polarized, standing either as an enemy or a one-of-us. A Place for Dialog is a corrective prescription using real case history here in the Southwest. Beautifully written, the language here flows with a crisp grace, never too academic, and in the end personally useful. Highly recommended and a read of value for those working to make social change or to understand why it frequently doesn't happen.
