Now an established classic in its field, the Seventh Edition of Writing with a Thesis is distinguished by its treatment of the importance of a thesis in creating a quality piece of writing. Ideal for departments in search of a rhetorically-organized reader, Writing with a Thesis provides short, lively and accessible essays and a direct approach to concepts and ideas that is both extensive and understandable to students. This rhetoric/reader is unique in its emphasis on the 'persuasive principles.'

This text applies the concept of the persuasive principle - the development and support of a thesis - as the major unifying theme of the book. Each chapter demonstrates how the persuasive principle underlies almost all good writing and applies this principle to rhetorical patterns.About the Author:
