This work offers a detailed examination of the theory and practice of dialogue as a cluster of related dialogical styles and approaches and not just as one entity. The author offers a critical and conceptual study of the nature of dialogue, and a discussion of concrete issues in teaching with dialogue: how it works, why it is beneficial for teaching, how it sometimes fails, and how to improve on it. Organising his book around the metaphor of playing a game, Burbules speaks to scholars and teachers in sophisticated, yet accessible language, about a topic of interest to both.
