In the field of technical communication, academics and industry practitioners alike regularly encounter the same question: "What exactly is it you do?" Their responses often reveal a fundamental difference of perspective on what the field is and how it operates. For example, academics might discuss ideas in terms of rhetorical theory, while practitioners might explain concepts through more practical approaches involving best business practices. And such differences can have important implications for how the field, as a whole, moves forward over time.  This collection explores ideas related to forging effective academia-industry relationships and partnerships so members of the field can begin a dialogue designed to foster communication and collaboration among academics and industry practitioners in technical communication. To address the various factors that can affect such interactions, the contributions in this collection represent a broad range of approaches that technical communicators can use to establish effective academy-industry partnerships and relationships in relation to an area of central interest to both: education. The 11 chapters thus present different perspectives on and ideas for achieving this goal. In so doing, the contributors discuss programmatic concerns, workplace contexts, outreach programs, and research and writing. The result is a text that examines different general contexts in which academia-industry relationships and partnerships can be established and maintained. It also provides readers with a reference for exploring such interactions.

Review:

The eleven essays in this collection, contextualized by the splendid foreword and afterword by Carolyn Rude and Dan Riordan, offer observations and insights about ways that the academy and the world of practice can collaborate to the advantage of our profession. Academy-Industry Relationships and Partnerships includes contributions by relative newcomers and veterans, academics and practitioners, and suggests ways that technical communicators who are teachers, students, and industry employees can gain from one another s expertise. The topics are wide-ranging and diverse: the application of stakeholder theory to academic programs, examples of intriguing partnerships between the academy and businesses and governmental organizations, and ways that research can influence practice, to name just a few. I enthusiastically recommend Tracey Bridgeford and Kirk St.Amant s collection for its valuable contribution to this important conversation. --George Hayoe, Ph.D., Department of Technical Communication Mercer University School of Engineering

As higher education faces public scrutiny of its costs versus benefits, this compilation on partnerships includes some gems for leaders of technical communication programs who face tough questions about the value of such programs. The collection also demonstrates that the antagonism between academe and industry is by no means universal. From internships and service-learning to consulting and research, technical communication faculty and students are engaged in meaningful collaborations with industry and government organizations. That is good news for all of us. --Kim Sydow Campbell, h.D., Professor and Derrell Thomas Faculty Fellow, Culverhouse College of Commerce at The University of Alabama

Bridgeford and St.Amant have put together an important, timely volume that delivers new thinking on relationships between the academy and industry. At my own university, these partnerships are becoming central and essential to what we do, and the essays in this collection not only deliver models for new kinds of partnerships but theorize and rethink the very nature of those partnerships. I plan on using this text in my own courses, particularly in graduate seminars on pedagogy and program administration. --Dave Clark, Associate Professor and Chair, Department of English, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee
