Description:

The guiding principle behind this reader is that training in argument helps student writers where they need it most: in focusing their sense of audience and purpose. This rich collection includes narrative as well as expository works, representing many different periods, cultures, and genres from Greek drama to American political speeches. With a balance of classic and contemporary selections, the readings clearly demonstrate the relevance of past arguments to present-day concerns. In organization, the text combines coherence with a high degree of flexibility. The first four chapters emphasize critical reading and writing. Each chapter introduces a fundamental concept for students to consider as they react to the readings. The accompanying commentary and questions place an equal emphasis on critical analysis and the shaping of written arguments. In both cases, the authors focus on audience and intent. The final chapter brings together readings from many different periods and perspectives to form four symposia. Here students are invited to take part in dialogues on four topics: freedom of expression; the environment; gender and the family; and principles and practicalities in politics.
