In these studies, linguists and educational researchers examine the concept of "communities of practice," developing aspects of the concept previously unexplored. The contributors use theories of language-in-use, literary practices and discourse to illuminate the relevance of conflict, power and social context to communities of practice. The studies reflect research conducted in schools, police stations, adult basic education, higher education and multilingual settings. They assess the relationship between communities of practice and theories based in literary studies, critical language studies, the ethnography of communication and sociological theories of risk.

In their own words, the Supreme Court has become "a national theology board," "a super board of education," and amateur psychologists on a "psycho-journey." The result has been a virtual rewriting of the liberties enumerated in the Constitution. A direct victim of this judicial micromanagement has been the religious aspect of the First Amendment. For example, the Court now interprets that Amendment under: a "Lemon Test" absurdly requiring religious expression to be secular, an "Endorsement Test" pursuing an impossible neutrality between religion and secularism, and a "Psychological Coercion Test" allowing a single dissenter to silence an entire community's religious expression. Additional casualties of judicial activism have included protections for State's rights, local controls, separation of powers, legislative supremacy, and numerous other constitutional provisions. Why did earlier Courts protect these powers for generations, and what has caused their erosion by contemporary Courts? Original Intent answers these questions. By relying on thousands of primary sources, Original Intent documents (in the Founding Fathers' own words) not only the plan for limited government originally set forth in the Constitution and Bill of Rights but how that vision can once again become reality.
