"Times change, lives change, and the terms we need to described our literature or society or condition --what Raymond Williams calls 'keywords' -- change with them. Perhaps the mo st significant development in the quarter-century since Eli Mandel edited his anthology 'Contexts of Canadian Criticism' has been the growing recognition that not only do different people need different terms, but the same terms have different meanings for different people andin different contexts. Nastion, history, culture, art, identity -- the positions we take discussing these and other issues can lead to conflict, but also hold the promise ofa new sort of community." - from the rear cover.
