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 questions and ideas about both individual and group identity. 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 features material on the writing process, with writing activities throughout, and a focus on research and argument.

Each chapter begins with Critical Questions and concludes with Critical Questions Revisited
