Written by the authors of such successful composition titles as Style: Ten Lessons in Clarity and Grace (AWL) and The Craft of Research (Chicago UP), The Craft of Argument is an argument rhetoric worth looking at! The Craft of Argument is based on the Toulmin system of argument and has a brief selection of readings. Reviewers have raved about the modifications to Toulmin that Williams and Colomb have made. This book can be described as "Toulmin developed for writing" or "A Toulmin for Writers."
