For those writing research papers, preparing arguments, or reading critically.

Review:
Written in a clear, engaging style, this text combines three books -- a rhetoric, a research guide, and a reader -- into one convenient teaching tool. The rhetoric section presents a full range of writing strategies, along with chapters in paragraphs, sentences, style, and three specialized types of writing. The research guide section includes three comprehensive chapters on the research paper making supplemental handouts or guides unnecessary. The reader section contains forty-two essays that illustrate the different writing strategies and display a wide variety of styles, tones, and themes.
