With the 2008 MLA Update edition, The New McGraw-Hill Handbook continues to set the bar for contemporary handbooks. Writing and research have changed dramatically since the first hardcover handbooks appeared. Today's students don't rely on pens or typewriters: they use computers to write. They don't just do research: they find their way through a maze of online information. They don't just read print: they analyze visuals. They don't just come to class: they participate in an online learning community. These changes have put new demands on composition courses. With its focus on writing in today’s environment, integrated coverage of technology and visual rhetoric, and hallmark coverage of writing across the curriculum, The New McGraw-Hill Handbook has been designed to provide today’s students with a current, comprehensive resource for writing in college and beyond.
