From the Back Cover:

Stanley Fish's critics disagree about him. He is an "intellectualboot-boy", a "trafficker in scurrility, effrontery, and every lowrhetorical trick", "a happy gamesman" with a "disturbingly radicalagenda". He is a jury-rigger, a dangerous populist, an open cynicand a self-declared sophist. And he is "the most quoted, mostcontroversial, most in-demand and most feared English teacher inthe world". The Stanley Fish Reader assembles for the firsttime the best work of this brightest intellectual light.

Essays spanning 30 years will attract anyone who has interestsin Milton, the English Renaissance, law and literature, speech-acttheory, Shakespeare, new pragmatism, first-amendment disputes,blind submission, rhetoric and anti-professionalism. This choicesurvey casts Fish's evolution into striking relief - what emergesis the transformation not of a personality but of a wholeintellectual generation. The personality remains, of course, mostriveting. As reported in the TLS, "Fish has made his livingfrom qualities more typically associated with careers in sports orventure capital: agility, pugnacity, tenacity, opportunism,inventiveness, risk, flair". Edited and with an introduction by H.Aram Veeser, the Reader also provides headnotes written byspecialists including Joan Bennett (Milton), Jonathan Goldberg (theNew Historicism), Bruce Robbins (Professionalism), Stephen Moore(poststructuralism), Judith Roof (the law), Judith Butler (freespeech), and many others.
