The third edition of the MLA's widely used Introduction to Scholarship in Modern Languages and Literatures features sixteen completely new essays by leading scholars. Designed to highlight relations among languages and forms of discourse, the volume is organized into three sections. "Understanding Language" provides a broad overview of the field of linguistics, with special attention to language acquisition and the social life of languages. "Forming Texts" offers tools for understanding how speakers and writers shape language; it examines scholarship in the distinct but interrelated fields of rhetoric, composition, and poetics. "Reading Literature and Culture" continues the work of the first two sections by introducing major areas of critical study. The nine essays in this section cover textual and historical scholarship; interpretation; comparative, cultural, and translation studies; and the interdisciplinary topics of gender, sexuality, race, and migrations (among others). As in previous volumes, an epilogue examines the role of the scholar in contemporary society.

Each essay discusses the significance, underlying assumptions, and limits of an important field of inquiry; traces the historical development of its subject; introduces key terms; outlines modes of research now being pursued; postulates future developments; and provides a list of suggestions for further reading. This book will interest any member of the scholarly community seeking a review of recent scholarship, while it provides an indispensable resource for undergraduate and graduate students of modern languages and literatures.

Although this text is very heavy (in an intellectual sense-- the book is not as enormous as you would imagine, thanks to economical use of page space) it's also incredibly enlightening and easy to navigate. The updated edition means the criticism is not so out of date as to be irrelevant or, worse, laughable. The contributors are at the top of their fields, and this text was an excellent introduction to the various dimensions of literary scholarship.

On one hand, the book is a fair representation of what many people in the MLA think the MLA is for, and a good overview of its current activities. On the other hand, it is a depressing concession to those people trying to subvert the MLA to make it a haven for the social justice movement. The chapter on linguistics is an overview of the field written for people who know nothing at all about linguistics by someone who doesn't know very much about linguistics. The chapter on composition admits that there is no real study of composition. Most of the book is chapters on "social justice", none of which show any concern for justice, but are merely depressing records of squabbles among different minority groups who are each trying to redefine the terms of the field in whatever way they think will give them the most political. This would be a useful book for convincing a new graduate student to drop out.
