Part of the Penguin Academics Series, Rhetorical Choices is a rhetorically-organized reader whose selections and apparatus encourage students to pay attention to the social and rhetorical dimensions of language and writing. The exploration of these dimensions throughout the book also helps students to see the power of writing and the lifelong benefits of writing well. Through its choice of readings and pedagogical elements throughout the book, Rhetorical Choices stresses more than any other reader the idea that writers are always making choices and that these choices always occur in a particular social, political, and cultural context.
