For freshman writing or composition courses where a reader is used. This thematically arranged anthology offers a wide-ranging and diverse collection of nonfiction readings - to introduce students to an exciting array of social issues relevant to their lives.

But they do so in a lively, engaging manner that will capture students' interest and encourage them to explore their own thinking and experience in writing.
